WEMBDON Cricket Club was among the eight clubs shortlisted for the 2018 Club Mirror Annual Awards evening at Doncaster Racecourse last week.

Since the opening of The Green at Wembdon in the summer of 2017 (home to sports teams, pre-school and Wembdon Village Hall), it has gone from strength to strength, becoming a popular venue for groups, classes and private functions.

Wembdon CC has been managing the bar and, as a result, was shortlisted and subsequently became a finalist in the Club Mirror Awards, hosted by Ray Stubbs and Mark Lawrenson.

Leicestershire County Cricket Club won in the end, but Wembdon CC is delighted to just to be nominated among some high-profile clubs.

It’s testament to how hard the staff work to make the cricket club and The Green at Wembdon a successful venue.

The club would like to thank all the community who support the facility throughout the year, and the club members are busy planning some big community events for 2019.
