Glodwick club veterans roll with it!

Glodwick club veterans roll with it! Glodwick Cricket Club duo Neil Williams and Gordon Whitehead are celebrating their 70th years by raising funds to replace the club’s heavy roller.

Glodwick club veterans roll with it!“The present roller is a bit of a beast,” said groundsman Gordon. “It’s over 50 years old and most members won’t touch it because it is really difficult to start on chilly mornings.”


To raise cash they are doing a 70-themed sponsored challenge consisting of a 70 lengths swim and a 70km bike ride on July 21-22.

“I’ve not been to the baths in 30 years,” added Gordon. “And it’s longer since Neil was on a bike, so it’s a real challenge for both of us.”

So far the appeal is going well, but rollers don’t come cheap, so they still have a way to go.
