UpdateAs many dog-walkers will have noticed, the reconstruction of the Club's pavilion is proceeding well. At the time of writing, the walls and roof are being clad, and the septic tank for the new drains has been installed. Because of the wet weather there had been pools of water in the furrows between the ridges, but now the outfield and the playing square have dried out a little, and they have been cut for the first time in preparation for the first home game at 1.30pm on Sunday 10th June.
Nocton Cricket Club - new pavilion under construction

Pre-season practice sessions have taken place outside at Blankney, and so the Club is grateful for the help which that Club has provided.
The team's first game of the season took place on Sunday 22 April, at Hartsholme, and produced the first points, although in a defeat. Nocton scored 96 with David Franklin providing the top score of 20. Hartsholme scored 97-4, with Terry Enerver taking 3-14. So that gave Nocton 2 bowling pts, but Hartsholme 20 pts for winning.
