The club is also to looking to recruit new players, scorers and umpires come the summer.

In a brief statement on the club’s GoFundMe page, which has so far accumulated £2,070, reads: “We are raising vital funds for the community of Knotty Green Cricket Club that will allow not only the club, but the wider community to be able to have a place to train and support the local area with a facility that can be used all year round.

“Our current net facility is not fit for purpose and we need to develop the area to not only encourage participation in sports but also to ensure the club attracts new members and is there for many years to come.

“It's important to us that we provide a facility where people of all ages have somewhere they can come and develop their skills and be safe.”

A 3D drawing of how large the net will be has also been included on the donation page.
