Norfolk League is looking to the future

The Lucas Fettes Norfolk Cricket League has embraced new technology in a bid to become more efficient in the future.

The league has recently launched a new website and its own Facebook group and secretary Tim Porter said: 'We have always tried to get messages and news out via the website and email but the Facebook group has enabled us to not just talk to the club representatives but also to a much wider number of league players and associates. It gives us another way to gather opinion and share ideas about how we can progress.'

League chairman Alan Harris has been responsible for establishing and administering the Norfolk Cricket League website for the past 12 years and it has proved a vital tool in keeping clubs informed. The rebranded website includes a quick view to getting results and news but also has enabled the league to start to give some responsibility to the clubs themselves.

Clubs will be able to insert their own results and write reports on the matches themselves. As the league considers player registrations and new rules, these will then be introduced in a progressive manner.

Porter added: 'We wanted a website that we could tailor to the needs of our league and what we as a committee want to achieve. We also wanted to maintain the standards and integrity that the Norfolk Cricket League website has built up over the years. It is important to us that we maintain the league's unique identity.'

The website also enables players of member clubs to sign up to receive the latest version of the league's Cricket Bag newsletter.

The new site has been designed by Ghost New Media and can be found at and the Facebook group can be found by searching for Norfolk Cricket League.
