Local cricketers no longer need fear the winter break and the absence of leather on willow. Players from Frampton Cotterell, Winterbourne and Coalpit Heath C.C.’s are once again looking forward to taking part in the increasingly popular Bristol & Somerset Indoor Cricket Network.

Players from Frampton Cotterell, Winterbourne and Coalpit Heath C.C.’s are once again looking forward to taking part in the increasingly popular Bristol & Somerset Indoor Cricket Network.

The 2013 Spring season saw Winterbourne top their respective league only to be pipped by The Fram in the play-offs. 

Frampton then progressed to the grand final of the competition where they were beaten by a strong Bristol Asians side.

Launched in 2011, the indoor league comprises 8-per-side, 12 overs-per-team matches which realistically replicate the outdoor game inside a sports hall. 

The format rewards tight bowling and straight hitting, whilst sharpening a player’s fielding and running between the wickets.

The B.S.I.C.N now boasts 50 participating teams across a variety of venues in the region and games take place on midweek evenings.
