IRONING OUT THE CREASE: The new ACG is nearing its first test.

RAIN and thunderstorms have not hampered progress on the Phuket Cricket Group’s (PCG) new home, the Alan Cooke Ground (ACG) in Thalang.

The grass and the concrete base have already been laid while the synthetic turf pitch, being provided by the Cricket Association of Thailand, will soon be in place.

“It won’t be long now before the Island Furniture cricket season gets underway and the players are ea- ger to try out the new ground. PCG is extremely proud of our new home, provided by long-time resident Alan Cooke, one of Phuket’s most avid cricket supporters” said Pat Cotter, chairman of the PCG.

“Now that the turf has been laid, we need a growing in period for it to take root. We expect it to be ready for the soft opening on November 6, when a Phuket All Star team will take on the Singapore Cricket Club in a Twenty / T20 exhibition match,” continued Pat.

Construction of the two-story clubhouse is also well underway

“With this new facility, we really believe that local residents and visitors alike, will be able to have a great day out,” said Pat.

The first friendly cricket match of the season pits last season’s league champions Patong CC against new boys TNT CC on October 9 at Cherng Talay school. Weather permitting, the first ball will be bowled at 9am.
