Prestwich Cricket Club is already making preparations for life in the new Greater Manchester Cricket League by looking to attract new players.

The club’s first team has been placed in the top division, where it will face familiar foes in the likes of Glossop and Denton West, but also new rivals such as Unsworth and Heywood.

Chairman Brian Lorenzini said: “We are looking to strengthen our playing squad across our three senior teams. The first XI will be playing in the GMCL Premier division and the seconds and thirds will also be part of this new and very competitive pyramid structure.

“Our junior section is also a key part of our strategy and structure.”
