BRADFORD Mutual Sunday School League side Bowling Baptists have struck a deal to use Manningham Mills' ground every week next season.

At the moment, the Group B club are fielding only one team, but they have permission from the Mutual League to expand to two sides in 2015.

Baptists' secretary Shazaid Yousaf said: "Our squad is in the high 20s at the moment and we have had a meeting this week about players wanting to join us for next season.

"Another five or six and we should be okay. Also we have been working on the ground, such as trimming the grass beyond the boundary edge and removing litter.

"We even worked on it last Saturday when our game was rained off."

The league umpires' appointments secretary Graham Langton said: "Everything is set fair for next season as long as they give the sightscreens a lick of paint and put some more struts in."
