WORCESTERSHIRE CCC have unveiled new 150th Anniversary Gates at the main entrance to New Road as a lasting memory to that landmark year in the club’s history.

County skipper and 2016 beneficiary Daryl Mitchell officially marked the opening of the new gates, sponsored by Crown Domestic Appliances.

The eye-catching gates have been designed by Dudley-based firm D J H Ironcraft.

Pears commercial director, Jon Graham said: “Historically we’ve had gates on the main entrance and they got damaged in floods, knocked about by vehicles and, when they came off after a flood a number of years ago, they weren’t put back on.

“The 150th Anniversary was a fantastic success with lots of really good events and I felt it was appropriate we needed some lasting memory of the year,” he added.
