A cricket club is hoping it will be able to see the yorkers, googlies and leg breaks coming after an optician sponsored its sightscreens for another year.

Thetford Town Cricket Club has joined up with Specsavers Thetford for the sixth consecutive year to help the side knock opponents for six.

As well as sponsorship of the sightscreens, the club’s players are being invited to have their eyes tested and receive advice on the importance of having regular examinations.

Club fundraiser, Andy Gray, said: “We are all very proud to be working with Specsavers for another season and I am really pleased that every aspect of the team’s physical health is being looked after.

“It is great to have Specsavers featured on the sightscreens and backing the team as well as teaching us all about eye health. Here’s to winning the 2015 season.”
