    Will move this to the cricket chat forum!

    Speaking from my two clubs - at Caistor Town we got one through a grant from someone or other (precise, I know), but that took about two years to come through, and at Exeter (whereabouts in Devon are you?) we have an antique one that was picked up somewhere (I forget the story) for not much.

    So, scour about and see..

    I'd be interested to see how you get on..
    Ive already got my own net, a wicket and a roller.. As well as biological bowling machines (mates), but I would like something to really crank up the pace..

    Good luck in your search...

    Could one ask what a yarco is?

    Perhaps your butler's third maid would be able to tell you?
