Net sessions kick off with good turnout

A dozen players were on parade for the first of the pre-season nets at the Devon Cricket Centre, Exeter University on Wednesday, March 2.

1st XI skipper Tim Piper was present as was Dan Hardy together with Will Greig, Paul Nott, Will Squire and Lawrence Greenway from last season’s 1st XI squad.

Bryn Jones, Will Birley, new signing Thom Bunker, Ryan Shrewsberry, Tom Etheridge and Connor Carthew, made up the 12 who were put through their paces for a 60-minute double net session.

Session two is being held at the same venue on Thursday, March 10 (9pm to 10pm) and more players are expected as the first night clashed with an important skittles match back at the Kensham Club.

Net sessions III, IV and V are then switched to Exeter School on March 16, 23 and 30 with each of them lasting 90 minutes and running from 8pm to 9.30pm.BCC psnets twoBCC ps nets twoBCC netsBCC nets four Dan HardyBCC psnets one
