A highlight for cricket lovers everywhere is the annual match between the best of Newick's First Eleven and Piers Morgan’s ‘Family’ - which always includes a few ringers such as Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle and Shane Warne. A couple of thousand spectators add to the atmosphere, where fans can mingle with the international stars .
New nets in 2017 enhance the practising capabilities, and Senior nets take place on Thursday evenings during the season. Coaching for the youngsters takes place on Friday evenings from April to July, and parents are encouraged to come along and watch - and have a glass of something while watching!
