Cricket: Halkyn CC dominate at North Wales League AGM
HALKYN CC capped a great 2009 at the North Wales League AGM.
The club clinched promotion to Division One in September and on Sunday three members of their squad picked up individual honours.
Maelor Thomas received the Division Two batting award for scoring 775 runs at an average of 64 and brother Gareth, manager of Buckley Town FC, collected the bowling award for taking 27 wickets at an average
of 9.78. To complete a clean sweep, veteran Mike Briscoe collected the wicketkeeping award for snaring 22 victims during the summer.
Jamie Parsonage, of Halkyn 2nds, shared the wicketkeeping award for Division Five with 13 victims.
Some of the unwelcome discoveries below the surface of the outfield during recent attempts to rectify the drainage problems which badly affected the 2012 season
Drainage Project July 27- August 5 2015
Following earlier unsuccessful attempts to rectify the drainage of the outfield eventually funding was obtained to install new primary drainage overlaid by sand slitting as secondary drainage to quickly remove the surface water,
Work in progress connecting diagonal primary drains into the main drain surrounding the square.
Day 2 of the project. Trenches being cut to a depth of 450mm to allow the insertion of 60mm perforated drain pipe.
The following picture shows the completed project. 1.5 miles of primary drainage pipe was installed overlaid by 12000 metres of sand slits to a depth of 250mm. Trenches were initially filled with gravel to within 100mm of the surface then sand added to complete the remaining infill.
Sadly, the type of sand we sourced was not of the ideal type and some additional infill remains to be done before the oufield can be considered safe to play on again.
