Horsford Cricket Club will become only the third cricket club in East Anglia to have SIS Grass Hybrid Wickets installed at their Manor Park ground on Friday 23rd February. With the other two cricket clubs in East Anglia that have hybrid wickets located in Essex, Horsford will be the first Norfolk cricket club to have the hybrid grass technology when they have two wickets installed.
