Newton's law

Newton Aycliffe Cricket Club have outlined their plans for the fast-approaching NatWest CricketForce weekend.

The club, who are based in Durham, are one of the record number who have signed up for this year's volunteer event, surpassing the 1,514 who took part in 2009.

Over the weekend of March 27th-28th, Newton Aycliffe's army of volunteers will be tasked with a number of objectives which include painting the scorebox, cleaning the sightscreens, sprucing up both home and away changing rooms, clearing away any foliage from around the nets and practice facilities and repairing the catching cradle.

CricketForce encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds.

NatWest CricketForce 2010 weekend will kick-off with a showcase event at Harrow St Mary's CC in Middlesex on Friday March 26, with events of all sizes planned at clubs across England and Wales the following two days.

It's not too late to take part either. So if you're club is not yet registered follow the link below now:
