A relegation threatened cricket team will start the season knowing only a bad run on the pitch can send them down - now an £80,000 revamp of its pavilion is underway.

Riddings Cricket Club’s 1938 built changing and storage facilities at West Street were in such disrepair last year, Derbyshire County Cricket League administrators threatened to drop the team down two divisions if things did not improve.

But thanks to funding from Derbyshire county and Amber Valley borough councils a brand new extended pavilion, complete with new changing rooms, showers and a garage for equipment is in progress, set to be completed by March.
