Cricket Club in Langley Green could lose out on £50,000 funding

New cricket nets in Langley Green could be in jeopardy.

A £50,000 grant from England and Wales Cricket Board had been awarded for new community practice nets at Cherry Lane.

However the MP for Crawley, Henry Smith, has raised concerns that misinformation given to Crawley Eagles Cricket Club may result in funding not being received.

Mr Smith claims the Club was initially told they did not need planning permission but has since been informed it is required.

He fears if permission is not granted by the end of this month then the money from the ECB will be lost.
