Funding for cricket nets in Langley Green will still go ahead

There is positive news for Crawley Eagles Cricket Club.

England and Wales Cricket Board have confirmed agreed funding for new cricket nets will still go ahead despite planning delays.

Henry Smith MP for Crawley was concerned the £50,000 grant would be lost if last-minute planning permission for the new nets at Cherry Lane in Langley Green was not granted by the end of the month.

The MP has received confirmation from the ECB the money will still be paid despite the potential delays.
