Ashfield’s cricketers will stride to the wicket better prepared after a ground upgrade at Teversal.
Ashfield District Council and Teversal Cricket Club have collaborated to create temporary changing rooms which will provide a comfortable, modern and secure facility.
The club’s Phil Horton said: “The buildings will suit the players well until we find a way of funding a more permanent solution.”
The new modular building was constructed by Integra Buildings and will be operational before the start of the cricket season.
Horton was also quick to thank council officers, and Cllr Jim Aspinall in particular, saying: “They’ve done so much to help the project and ensure a smooth transition.”
The new facility replaces recently demolished changing rooms which were deemed no longer fit for purpose.
The club and council say they will meet Sport England representatives soon to discuss a more permanent solution for the community.
Aspinall said: “Together we have come along a way to get to this point. I’m delighted with what we have achieved.
“ I would like to thank local residents and stakeholders for their patience and co-operation.”
