Other Cricket Club News

The club have invested in a brand new till system in the bar. This makes running the bar much easier and quicker while also providing us with additional card payment machines to make service faster. We now have one static card machine on the bar, a card machine which acts as a portable till to be used around the site as well as a fully portable card machine to use at the Friday night BBQ’s during the summer months. The new till system will go live soon!
