I dream on , but if all works out in the future , we could have a facility to be proud of .....
You and me both, fingers and everything else crossed!

Jaysay, ACC use the facilities at Accrington Academy for indoor nets.

Re: Cricket.

Talking about collections... there is one chap at Accy CC who always develops a severe incontinence problem & disappears to the bogs when the collection box does the rounds.

Rumour has it that he keeps a mouse trap ready set, in his pocket, to act as a grim reminder should his digits stray towards the cash.

Warne came at roughly 21 years of age. He hadn't made his Australia debut. So you can't really place him with Viv Richards. He is exactly the same as the like of Nash, Hauritz, Rudolph, Simmons (Whom Enfield nearly signed this season). Amatuer wise look at Anderson now playing for England. The likes of Barker at Warickshire.

This season is sure to be exciting doubt be knocking your local rivals your Accrington fans
