Welsh cricket has never known a summer like it and those involved are praying that next season is a whole new ball game. Neyland Cricket Club were just one club that had to get used to a very different world, as Tom Pritchard reports.

However, at the beginning of July, it was announced that recreational cricket could return, albeit with a number of new, strict measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those involved.

Wrexham revealed the news on Wednesday and it is understood any takeover could see £2million pumped into the club.

The Wales captain has revealed his coping strategy during his frustrating final few months in Spain – during which time he became a target for anger and derision among some sections of the club’s supporters and Spanish media – by shrugging his shoulders and smiling on through. Bale joined Tottenham Hotspur on a season-long loan earlier this month seven years after having departed north London for a then world-record transfer fee.
