New indoor cricket league

PUBLISHED: 14:22 23 November 2011




A new indoor cricket league is to start in the new year at Clevedon School.

THE North Somerset Indoor Cricket League (NSICL) is a fast and exciting eight-a-side adult cricket competition that provides a competitive 
format of the game as an alternative or addition to the traditional winter nets programme.

The newly launched league is affiliated to the wider Bristol & Somerset Indoor Cricket Network (BSICN) which also runs the hugely popular Bristol Indoor Cricket League.

NSICL will be launched at Clevedon School’s spacious sports hall and will offer a great opportunity for locally based cricketers to enjoy a well organised and sociable cricketing experience during the closed season.

The league is set to run over a 10 week period (January 18 to March 21) and will consist of six teams. Matches are scheduled between 7-10pm on Wednesday nights and will be officiated by ECB qualified personnel.

A dedicated website is currently under construction and will provide teams with up-to-date information on results, fixtures and the latest league tables.

BSICN director John Colley is passionate about cricket and plays for Bristol YMCA CC who, themselves, compete in the Bristol 

Colley said “We set out to offer local club cricketers an exciting new version of the indoor game that most accurately reflects the style and pace associated with the traditional outdoor format of league cricket we play during the summer.

New teams are signing up all the time but we still have a few places remaining and would welcome enquiries from league and friendly sides.”
