Chairman Neil Rice also took the opportunity to pay tribute to The Devon Cricket Board and in particular senior officials Matt Theedom and Jim Wood for their help in supporting the club since the flood and in helping in our negotiations with The England and Wales Cricket Board to secure funding towards a new drainage system that we were anxious to have installed prior to the start of next playing season.
