North West cricket club Prestwich will be hoping to expand their club to the next level by improving all training facilities on the ground.

The club received £1,500 from a community fund linked to Parklife, an annual music festival in Heaton Park, Manchester.

The club’s all time leading wicket taker and ex-captain Andrew Bradley received the award at an event hosted by Coun Alan Quinn, from Bury Council.

Bradley, 45, said: “It’s great, the fund will go a long way to helping the club, especially with the training facilities that will help us go to the next level.”

The money has gone towards new nets put as well as a refurbished AstroTurf wicket just off the square.

Brian Lorenzini, the club chairman who turns 70 on Tuesday, said: “I’m delighted that the Parklife Community Fund has so generously offered to give to the club that I have loved all my life.”

The club expressed their gratitude to the Community Fund by thanking them on the club website. 

The Greater Manchester Premier League side are preparing for their season which starts on April 20th where they travel to Woodhouses.
