Worcestershire CCC have already attracted more than 200 new members for the 2015 campaign which combines the club's 150th Anniversary Year and a return to playing LV = County Championship Division One cricket.

There has been a steady increase in new members throughout the close season after the county gained promotion from Division Two in dramatic fashion last September.

The figure has delighted Worcestershire CCC's Membership and Ticketing Manager Amy Francetti.

She said: "You can sense the excitement amongst supporters with the new season now less than a month away although it is next week that we play our first friendly at home to Gloucestershire (March 25-27).

"With it being the club's 150th Anniversary Year and with a return to Division One cricket in the LV = County Championship, people have been keen to become members for 2015 and at the latest count the number of new members was up to 207.

"This is more than the personal target I had set and it's great news for the club and great that people want to be part of a milestone year in the club's history.

"There are various membership packages to cater for all types of members ranging from club membership, club country membership, premium membership, premium country membership, club elite membership, elite membership, 18-24 membership, junior membership and the NatWest T20 Blast season pass."
