Todd’s have given a helping hand to local, York based Cricket Club. Huby Cricket Club have recently purchased new equipment to improve the cricket experience for its members and visiting players.
The project which cost in excess of £7,000 was mainly funded by a grant from the Landfill Communities Fund in partnership with Todd Waste Management from their old Knapton Landfill Site, which is now supplying energy to the national grid.
Darren Howell from Huby Cricket Club, said, “Todd’s generosity has enabled us to purchase much needed equipment to improve the practice sessions: particularly for our juniors: and to improve our playing surface through the use of germination sheets, to help repair the wicket following the wear and tear inflicted during matches”.
Howell also added, “In addition the excellent covers help us to prepare a better playing surface before matches and protect the wicket from the elements during matches: saving games that would otherwise be lost to the weather”.
Huby Cricket Club currently runs 2 teams in the Senior Leagues. All ages are encouraged to attend net sessions, with their second team made up largely of juniors to ensure that players from the age of 13 would play an integral role in batting and bowling during league matches.
