New scoreboard installed

The busy work continues up at The Langley in preparation for the new season. Electric cabling has been run from the pavilion to the nets, for easy set-up of the bowling machine, and from the pavilion across the outfield of the main pitch to the electronic scoreboard which has been installed on a bespoke heavy-duty wooden stand. This will make it easier for scorers and spectators, as well as players, to easily check the score of a match.
