I have recently got back from watching the best cricket festival in the world at North Marine Road (where else). The entertainment was fantastic, the weather was brilliant and the accommodation overlooking the cricket ground was out of this world.
I was particularly impressed by the changes made to the stadium, a big improvement from my last visit. The atmosphere, facilities and overall ambience around the place was first class. Surely there is scope for the venue to progress and have a greater number of high profile fixtures in the future.
Unfortunately, the big letdown for me was the area immediately around the outside of the ground, in particular the back alley behind Trafalgar Square, where we had to stand queuing among large quantities of dog mess.
Come on Scarborough Borough Council, sort this area out!
