Peter and Christopher Pyemont

As a cricket venue Newclose performs well. Cricket legend Peter Pyemont describes the facilities following a winter visit to the ground;

“In November 2013 I visited Newclose County Cricket Club to give a talk on “The History of The Ashes.” The ground was bathed in late
November sunshine and I marvelled at the setting and the thought that had gone into the design and construction of this beautiful place. The pavilion, modern and efficient inside, complemented the ground perfectly. Finally the people involved were welcoming, dedicated, friendly and appreciative. I can think of no better place to tour.”
