Lovely location, much work has been done recently to freshen up this groun and its looking fab. Big open spaces with local amenities. Building work needs finishing off but its safe for children and offers many activities throughout the year.

A ground with a lot of history which is trying to modernise itself but the possible construction of a lot of apartments along the east side of the ground will very much change its character

The St Lawrence cricket ground is a friendly place to watch quality cricket. The new buildings have enhanced it and make it an attractive venue for all the family, especially the 20:20 matches that are fast, fun and entertaining.
