The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Ray Hunt/Brian Jarrard: December 2015
Tattenhall Cricket Club has been notified that for the first time in its history it will host a Cheshire game over 3 days in June 2016.
Wiltshire will be the visitors to The Flacca and the game will be played on Sunday 5th June to Tuesday 7th June from 11.0am each day. This invitation comes after Tattenhall successfully hosted a one day game against Cambridgeshire in 2013.
The Cheshire County Cricket press release informs that 'Tattenhall boast one of the most picturesque grounds in English cricket' and that Ground Chairman 'Brian Jarrard's pitch was highly praised by both teams' in 2013's County Game.
TCC's Chairman, Alex Sandland, paid tribute to the hard work of Brian and his Ground Committee as well as the support of Sport Tattenhall in bringing this long held ambition to reality. 'With such high praise from the County it is now up to all of us to make the most of the opportunity and get behind the staging of a great game for Tattenhall. My thanks to all of the committee and volunteers over the years for their dedication to improve the facilities at The Flacca and we look forward to welcoming you in June for what should be an excellent occasion'.
