BURLEY Cricket Club is hoping to raise £35,000 in the next four weeks to improve their practice facilities.

Director of cricket Dave Cooper said: "The club has an extraordinary crop of talented youngsters at he moment.

"Four play for the full Yorkshire age group teams, six for West Yorkshire and eight for either the Aire Wharfe or Bradford Taverners teams.

"The club is looking to install a hybrid pitch (similar to Ilkley Cricket Club's), refurbish the artificial nets and build a secure flood proof equipment store."

To help promote the appeal Cooper has called on two former Burley CC juniors,Yorkshire star Matty Revis and England star Harry Brook to appear on a video which can be seen at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/harry-brook-appeals-for-burley-in-wharfedale-cc
