NETHERFIELD Cricket Club has raised £268 from its first ever Chip and Run open competition which was held at the club's ground.

The competition was organised by Carl Medhurst who noticed a strong level of participants over the two-day period, with players, former players, club members, supporters and the general public taking part in the competition.

Barney Coxon won the men’s prize after finishing with eight points, while Sue Crisp won the ladies' award after she picked up five points.

Netherfield have also raised money from a football card and they are also planning to do another card with £500. The other £500 will be going towards the club’s funds as they look to battle through the current coronavirus crisis.

On the field, the club could be returning to some form of training depending on government announcements from Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Netherfield, like many other sport clubs, has been struggling after the club house had to be closed in what was promising to be a strong season, and frustrations due to missed opportunities with the weather have also been felt.
