Ground improvements at Southwell Cricket Club give lockdown cheer




A cricket-loving bilateral amputee who raised more than £5,000 with a sponsored walk around his local club’s boundary saw the funds put to use on Saturday.

Andy Ashworth, from Southwell, lost his left leg below the knee in May 2016, and the right above the knee in March 2018 and, in typical sporting fashion, capped off his rehabilitation by walking around Southwell Cricket Club’s pitch.
