Hertfordshire County Disabled Cricket Club
Ray Cross -Club Captain – 01296 482406
Email: raycross_wheels@yahoo.co.uk
Ray Cross says “The club has been going for approx. 6 years now but players are getting older or moving away. We are trying to recruit new players into the team and we have approx. 4 amputees. We would welcome members from Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire or Buckinghamshire that would be interested in playing cricket for us. We have a good bunch of youngsters and a few oldies like myself. Our disabilities vary from amputees, Cerebral Palsy and a few wheelchair users but we are in need of a few more amputees to compete further. We play in the Southern section of the Cricket for People with Disabilities League and just missed out in making the semi’s for the last 2 years but with more players, we hope to progress further.”
