Collingham Cricket Club captain says sport will boom after lockdown
Cricket club captain Ollie Dyson believes the sport will lead the way as the country prepares for life after lockdown.
Dyson, captain at Collingham Cricket Club, said it was likely cricket would be the first sport to return after the third lockdown.
“We are focussing on getting our ground and getting the nets ready and then getting out there,” he said.
“With no other sport happening at the minute, and with none looking likely to take place over the next few months, it feels like the focus is on cricket.
“You have other sports like golf and tennis, which could also come back at a similar time, but from our perspective everybody at the club is really looking forward to getting back.
“There are a lot of positive changes happening at the club. We have had an influx of new players and the recruitment over the winter was really successful.
“Everybody is chomping at the bit to get playing as soon as possible.”
