Hampshire Cricket Board's 2018 Facilities and Funding Day attracted a wide range of participants to The Ageas Bowl.

Club chairs, groundstaff, secretaries and local authority officers heard from an expert panel on project funding, management, technical guidance, groundsmanship and club case studies.

The event also included a trip to the middle, the nursery square and nets, and to Lord's bound Karl McDermott's impressive equipment haul housed in the groundsman's tunnel.

Thanks for yesterday. Excellent, I could listen to Karl all day. He should make some training videos.
