Evening people,

The stickers on my bat are slightly lifting so obviously want to stick them back down but what glue do people find is best for this???

cheers

Personally, I use nail glue. It sticks within seconds and holds well. If you are quick enough, I would use that method. Nail glue is around 79p a bottle and you only need a drip or two.

Its on my county bat - guessing you will have seen them, you know on the back of the bat where the 'target' symbol is that is lifted....

What is the exact name of the glue mate???

I cant remember at the moment, you can get it from wilkinsons I think, but its just normal nail glue, not more than a quid, and it comes in a very little bottle.
