Club chairman Les Mills said: “It was great to see players and members helping.

“It is a very large ground for our volunteer ground staff to keep up to the standard required to maintain our status as one of the best cricket grounds in Cambridgeshire.

“Thanks to our helpers including Terry Hunt, who kept a constant supply of tea and coffee throughout and arranged a fish and chip lunch.”
