Frickley Colliery Cricket Club has continued to bolster its squad for the new Pontefract Cricket League season with the signing of opening left-arm bowler Craig Heppinstall.

The talented young player arrives at Westfield Lane from Monk Bretton and was high on the club’s ‘wanted’ list over the winter months.

Heppinstall’s arrival will bolster the firepower in Frickley’s bowling ranks as they target an improved campaign in 2013.

He follows Stephen Secker as a major addition to the Colliery squad and Frickley are still hoping to add “one or two” new faces to their squad before the season starts.

Frickley have already approached two other players who opted to stay at their respective clubs and missed out on another target due to a transfer elsewhere already going through.

The club welcomes new players to attend net sessions, which take place on a Wednesday night between 7pm-8pm at Minsthorpe High School.
