Fantasy Club Cricket Returns for 2019!

After the success last year, we will be running a fantasy cricket league again this year.

Entry costs £10 per team and this is open to everyone, so please do encourage family and friends to enter a team. You do not have to pay straight away; entry fee can be paid throughout the season.

50% of the takings will be put aside into the prize pot with winner taking all so it really is up to you how big the prize pot is. The other 50% will go to the club.

This is a fun way of raising funds for the club so lets try and top last year’s 22 entries.
