CRICKET followers are being invited to join former England star Matthew Hoggard and Danielle Wyatt at Forton CC, Shropshire, for the NatWest CricketForce showcase event on Friday.

Entering its 13th year, NatWest CricketForce (NWCF) is an ECB grassroots volunteering initiative, which encourages cricket clubs to engage with their local community for help with renovation projects and ground improvements before the new season begins.

A record number of clubs (2,228 and counting) have registered to put on a NWCF event this weekend.

The 2014 showcase NWCF event takes place at Forton Cricket Club, Eccleshall Road, Forton, Newport, Shropshire TF10 8BY.
