New artificial wicket for UCC Cricket!

Fantastic news for UCC Cricket Club today as a date for the installation of a new artificial wicket has been finalised after months of hard work and planning. Planning began as early as September 2015 for the replacement of the old surface and the installation of the¬†new ‘mat’ at Curraheen Park and following lengthy discussions over the Christmas period and into the New Year, the project was approved.

Today’s site inspection was the final box to be ticked and will pave the way for the installation next week. The new surface will¬†ensure a long term future for cricket at ‘The Farm’ and was the central element in the club’s two year development plan. The news is a welcome boost for UCC ahead of the new MCU season which will begin on the final weekend in April.
