There has been a lot happening behind the scenes since the start of the season. Club runners Dave Davies and Peter Buttfield have been hard at work securing a grant which has been used to rebuild the front of the club house. We are now happy to announce that we have a brand new 108sqm fully roofed under cover area which extends from the bar a whopping 8 meters out. Come down watch some cricket, Grab a drink from our licensed bar and enjoy the great things happening around the club. More in depth updates to come soon.
The club is happy to announce there have been several upgrades that have taken place over the off season.
Our center wicket has now been scarified and a complete new top layer of clay has been layed down. This will provide PCC with a premier turf wicket for future seasons to come.
We are currently 60% through upgrading our mains power feed. This involved trenching and re hauling all new mains power cable from the street to the club house, Upgrading our current Distribution board giving us a higher capacity for any future works including upgrading our function room.
Last but not least we are proud to announce we are currently installing 6 new light towers around our recently built training net facility and field practice area. We are hoping the ability to train well past 6:30pm will help provide a safer area at night to train as well as help get more seniors down to training who could not otherwise train due to time and evening lighting constraints
