Places Still Available For Cricket Society Manchester Trip

Places Still Available For Cricket Society Manchester Trip

Worcestershire Cricket Society still have places available for anyone interested in their two-day trip to Manchester on April 5-6.

Thirty-five tickets have already been snapped up for the trip which incorporates a tour of Old Trafford Cricket Ground (or Emirates Old Trafford as it is now known).

There will be an overnight stay at the Mercure Hotel in Wigan.

The price of the trip, including an executive 53 seater coach, bed, breakfast and evening meal at the hotel, cost of the cricket tour with tea or coffee, cost of hiring a local tour guide and a tip for the driver, is £80.

Not included is lunch at Salford Qays on the opening day and an optional tour of Manchester United's Old Trafford Stadium on the second day.

The normal cost for this tour is £16.50 but will cost only £10 per person if 20 people decide to take up the option.

Non Cricket Society members are welcome to join the trip – subject to paying a £20 deposit.

Anyone interested should contact trip organiser Mike Hitchings, who has done a sterling job in keeping the cost down, on 07979464715 or email him at

The coach will depart New Road at approximately 09.10am on April 5 and arrive back – via a stop at Buxton on the return journey – at approximately 7pm on April 6.

Full details of the trip were published on the Worcestershire CCC website last week.
