Claude Henderson, Leicestershire CCC Director of Cricket remarked;

“We have been indoors at Grace road since October, so it was fantastic for the boys to get some cricket outside.

It was really great, we had a middle and within walking distance nets, so that was fantastic.

 It was really great to get that bulk of cricket in and it served the purpose, a really great place!”
