We would encourage all our member clubs to enter this great new competition and are grateful to Flicx for providing a prize that will improve the facilities of our winner’s club giving more people access to the game,” said McMillan.
On behalf of Crazy Catch Richard Beghin added, “Flicx Pitches have provided new playing surfaces for youngsters around the world for the last 12 years having originally been designed and developed in South Africa, for youngsters in Townships. Flicx and ICC have worked closely over the years to help develop cricket and this competition will be a great way for clubs around the world where cricket is not so easily accessible, to improve their facilities and demonstrate the power of the sport. By entering the competition it’s also a great opportunity to raise the profile of your club locally using the power of social media,” said Beghin.
