Cricket Legend visits G.T.C Sports Surface

G.T.C Sports recently completed an installation of a brand new artificial cricket wicket at Austin Friars St. Monica's School, Carlisle. Whilst we were carrying out the installation, the school was visited by England's most capped cricketer, Alec Stewart. As the ambassador for Clydesdale Bank, he spent some time watching the school's cricketers practicing and was happy to answer any questions that the pupils threw at him. 

Mr Stewart also found time to look at the artificial cricket wicket that was in the process of being installed and he commented on how it is facilities like this that enable young players to develop their skills and produce successful players of the future.

As you can see from the picture above, Alec Stewart was more than happy to talk to the installation team about the new cricket wicket and how its similarities to a natural grass wicket enable the children to play all year round.
