The new and improved Malmsbury Cricket Club is showing off its shiny new upgrades.
The $150,000 upgrade of the cricket ground and new facilities has delighted club secretary Gary Nicholls.
“We’ve got a brand new white fence all the way around the perimeter of the oval,” he said.
“It looks very much like those English county grounds with the white picket fences.
“We have three brand new cricket practice nets and we’ve had an upgrade to the pavilion. It looks bloody marvellous.”
Mr Nicholls said the club was hoping the upgrades would help it attract more players.
The club provided $20,000 towards the upgrade, Macedon Ranges council contributed $30,000 and the state government $100,000.
