Leicester's historic Aylestone Road cricket ground to be restored
Last summer I found the Leicester Electricity Sports Cricket Club ground off Aylestone Road where Leicestershire played their county games between 1901 and 1939.
Grace, Bradman, Hammond and Hutton all played there, and so did Mike Brearley in the last first class game it hosted.
Yesterday the Leicester Mercury reported that funding has been secured for the first stage in a rennovation programme from the pavilion.
