Wirral's Wallasey Cricket Club fights closure

ONE of Merseyside’s most prestigious cricket clubs is fighting against closure.

Wallasey Cricket Club is facing financial difficulties.

Despite its thriving cricket teams, dwindling membership, lack of sponsorship and rising maintenance costs are all pushing the club into debt.

Third team captain Neil Kelly said: “The club is like a really close knit family and has a long History, it would be devastating to see it gone.”
