Promotion is priority with the one eye on producing player to push for first team cricket.
Do you feel you need to add to the 2nd XI Squad in the winter?

Why should people come down and watch your 2nd XI?
Fun family friendly atmosphere with a competitive cricket what more could you ask for!

A division higher, looking to replace players stolen by the first team!
We are well known for having some of the best facilities, but why else would local players want to come down and play for Barton Town CC?
