  Saint Andrews invest £50k in new net complex at Wyvern  

TAUNTON St Andrews have invested over £50k to provide an impressive brand new three lane artificial net complex that has been built in the south east corner at the Wyvern Sports Club.

The nets have been provided from funds that have been accrued by the club over a number of years, in addition to which there have been several generous donations from players past and present and an interest free loan.

The Saints president Richard Brice said: “The nets will hopefully help us to attract the best players to the club and will help in our quest to regain promotion back to Premier One on WEPL.

“We are also keen to try and attract as many youngsters to play cricket for us. The new nets got the approval of all the sporting bodies involved here at The Wyvern and were also granted planning permission by the local council.

“Our idea is to provide something that will benefit Taunton St Andrews both now and for years to come, in addition to which this will be a facility that cricketers from across the town and beyond can come and hire for use.

“Taunton is a cricketing town and we feel that the provision of these nets is a lasting legacy.”

A lot of the work has been undertaken by former Somerset favourite Dennis Breakwell the groundsman at Taunton St Andrews.

“This is a pretty high quality installation here at Saints and compares to anything anywhere else in the town or the county,” said the man who tipped Jos Buttler to become an England cricketer from a young age.

One of the first groups to use the new nets will be The Saints Juniors when they attend the sign up evening session on April 6th starting at 6pm.
