Ball-by-ball coverage of Gloucestershire junior games with app
Supporters can watch live ball-by-ball coverage of a number of junior and district county matches this summer thanks to a new partnership between the Gloucestershire Cricket Board and pioneering scoring app CricHQ.
By downloading the free app onto their iPhone or Android or visiting the GCB website people can keep up-to-date with detailed information on every ball, with graphics on everything from where it pitched, to where it was hit and how many runs were scored.
Fans logging onto www.gloucestershirecricketboard.com/index.php/crichq-live-scoring on June 13 were the first people to see the ground-breaking app in action at the Gloucestershire Under 11 vs Wales U11s match at St Peter's Close, Frocester.
GCB Cricket Development Manager Steve Silk: "The app is fantastic and it will completely revolutionise the way people are able to follow our junior age group cricket. Parents and supporters who are unable to attend a game will be able to log on and watch live graphics of every ball as it happens."
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.

The CricHQ app - sponsored by Natwest - was developed in New Zealand and has been launched in the UK this summer with Gloucestershire and Sussex the first counties to try it out.
It will initially be used in Gloucestershire by coaches working with selected junior county and district teams but can be downloaded and used by anyone with a smartphone or iPad from www.CricHQ.com.
One of the first people in the UK to use the app was Gloucestershire Development Officer Adam Jones.He said: "I was amazed how easy it was to use – it was much simpler than using a traditional scorebook."The level of data it can produce, like pitch maps and 3D wagon wheels is fantastic. It will be a great coaching tool to help our coaches improve both individuals and teams."
CricHQ, who's investors include Gloucestershire Gladiators star Muttiah Muralitharan and England spinner Graeme Swann, will also be covering the Gladiators upcoming t20 matches live on their website.
The County Cricket Club also plan to use the app's detailed data when assessing trialists and players coming through their academy.
Rob Lynch, CricHQ's Europe Manager said: "We are delighted with our partnership with the Gloucestershire Cricket Board and Gloucestershire County Cricket Club. Our aim is to work with the Gloucestershire cricket community to showcase the benefits of using our products and what is possible by adopting today's technology."
