Horsley & Send Cricket Club: Groundsperson required

Horsley & Send Cricket Club is an up and coming club based in West Horsley, Surrey. The club has two pitches, four adult Saturday sides and around 300 junior members, including a growing girls section. Each square has two hybrid wickets installed earlier this year.

The current groundsperson is retiring and the club is looking for a replacement. The role includes maintaining the grounds, preparing wickets for adult and junior matches and generally keeping the place tidy. The position is also expected to include some work preparing wickets for another local cricket club (roughly 5 hours a week during the season) and a similar amount of work at a local school from April to July.

Self-contained accommodation can be provided at the club if required, suitable for either a single person or a couple. If a couple, there may be revenue-earning opportunities for a partner.

Specific responsibilities include:

• Maintaining the squares and outfields
• Providing high quality pitches and wickets for around 100 matches a season, including for the junior section
• Assisting with the scheduling of junior matches/wickets and some third party adult matches
• Maintaining the grounds in a respectable condition including, as required, trimming hedges, pruning, strimming, mending fences etc
• Working with and maintaining various types of machinery and equipment
• Preparing a Saturday wicket each week for another local club, estimated to take around 5 hours a week during the season
• A similar amount of time preparing wickets for a local school from April to July

If resident, the applicant will also be expected to:
• Lock the gates and the clubhouse each evening and open them in the morning
• Help keep the clubhouse and surround tidy, as required

A flexible approach is needed to working hours, with greater input needed from March to October than in the winter months.

The successful applicant will have:
• Significant experience of cricket ground maintenance
• A strong work ethic with high standards of work and attention to detail
• A full UK driving licence
• Strong organizational and communication skills
