SPORTS TV listing website general manager, Greg Murphy (left), presented Glenrothes Cricket Club’s 2011 shirt to new signing Chris Greaves.

Captained by Greig Hopcroft, the Town Park team will be looking to challenge on all fronts this season.

He said: “It’s always an exciting time for cricketers when the new season gets underway.

“We feel we’ve recruited and trained well over the winter, and there is a real buzz about the place and the guys are really confident that we’ll be competitive in every match”.

It’s been a busy off-season for the club whose coach, Steve Rowley, has put the squad through its paces with an extensive winter training campaign and the signing of Chris, who last season played his cricket with Durham.

The club are always on the lookout for new players and hold open public training sessions at the park every Thursday evening during the season, from 6.30pm.

Anyone is welcome to attend and for more details call Greig on 07944 276938.
