  Press Notice:  
  ACG Phuket Cricket and Sports Ground (Alan Cooke Ground)

The Contract for the ACG Cricket and Sports Ground was awarded on the 31 May this year. Initial preparatory works have been completed.

Ground Breaking for Construction

Will take place at 8:30 am Monday 27 June at the Lakes Area Baan Lipon.

Completion of the actual ground will be November, ready for the start of the Phuket cricket season. Construction of the clubhouse will commence on the 1 August 2011, with substantial completion by late November. The ACG is financed by the owner Alan Cooke MBE, plus an anonymous donation of one million baht. A further two million baht is required to complete the ground facilities ready to receive the MCC Touring Team (that’s THE MCC) in February. “The ACG has been designated the venue for their first game in February of the Thailand tour” says Alan. The ACG in conjunction with the Phuket Sports Association is the official ground for the National Youth Games - Cricket - to be held in Phuket March 2012.

The ACG has the active support of the Sports Association of Phuket (PSA), Cricket Association of Thailand (CAT), and the Asian Cricket Council.

The ACG will be managed by the Phuket Cricket Group (PCG), the official umbrella group for Phuket and southern Thailand. The PCG has over the past six years run an active Thai Youth Cricket Development programme in local government schools.

Alan reports that “the ACG is just not about cricket but also other field sports”, likely to include, but not limited to, rugby, hockey, baseball, some talk of frezsbiess whatever they are.
