Long Sutton Cricket Club got their winter-nets under way on Sunday – and they had an award winner among their ranks.
Teen ace Ellie Burton picked up the under-15 girls’ fielding award at the Lincolnshire county awards ceremony.
Ellie (pictured front, centre) was selected for the county team last year, having only taken up the sport in 2011. Sutton’s nets continue every Sunday at the Peele Leisure Centre (10am-noon) up until March, with all new faces welcome to join them.
