From Craig Wilson (Technical Director at Sinclair Knight Merz, Manchester)

Thanks for a great cricketing evening.  A great time was had by all and everything went to plan including the result and the weather !!

Everyone from the spectators to the players commented on the great facilities which we were able to use including all the hire of the equipment, the very welcome half time refreshments and the food and drink which were organised by yourselves for after the match which proved to be great value all served in a great social atmosphere in the Clubhouse.

Many thanks for helping us have a hugely successful team building and social event,  We shall certainly be returning for another summer evening of cricket next year.
