Shobrooke Park CC has been donated an Electric Scoreboard

When cricket resumes, Shobrooke CC will be basking in the joys of a new electronic scoreboard, which will no doubt delight our scorers Geoff Coish & Pete Gascoigne & Co when they eventually find themselves there. The 2nd XI scorer, Lyn Crosland, has generously donated a mobile scoreboard to the Club. Operated via WiFi & with its own power supply, it can be set up in sight of the scorebox, and be visible all round the ground. Being mobile it can be stored safely at the end of each game. It is an optimistic sign that even Division C Clubs, are happy & able to invest in the future of Club cricket.
