We walked down Osier Way to find a kissing gate at the bottom (an conveniently placed doggy poo bin) we went through the gate and discovered a lovely walk along the River Nene to Nine Arches Bridge, it’s a very short stroll, ideal if doggy or you just needs a bit of fresh air.
The Northamptonshire Association for the Blind will be providing Ball by Ball commentary on all four day and one day 50 over games to be played at Wantage Road in 2017. Twenty/20 commentary is provided by Radio Northampton but conveyed to partially sighted spectators via the headsets. The first game is on Friday April 7th and the visitors are Glamorgan. The game will commence at 11.00am and continue until Monday April 10th.
The commentary is designed to bring as much information to partially sighted spectators and a description of the ground and the atmosphere is provided to make the spectator more aware of the game as it develops and draws to its conclusion. A list of the opening games is attached. The commentary is enhanced by information derived from ESPN crikinfo, and reference books and details of visiting players and lesser known county players is conveyed to the listener by the commentary team. Further information, such as record scores and partnerships, is available via the scorers and local press who are situated adjacent to the commentary box. The description of the game is delivered in an informal style by the volunteer commentators who have a wide experience of many aspects of cricket. Knowledge of first class and local cricket is available with an interpretation of laws from qualified umpires within the team. Gaps in play are punctuated by informal chat and discussion on the events taking place, about cricketing matters as they develop, in the test and first class arenas.
The Mobile Unit will of course be travelling around the county and details are shown below of the locations and dates of visits within Northamptonshire.
