Supporting Junior Cricket
In order to help organise and grow the Club’s thriving junior sections, the Trust incentivised Club members to help on Friday evenings and junior match days by reimbursing their Membership Subscriptions for 2019. All those that committed week to week to helping with junior training and match days have been reimbursed.
Midweek cricket, and cricket in general, continues to struggle as participation numbers keep falling as each year passes. In order to help alleviate this the Trust has covered the cost of midweek match fees for all those Club members aged under 25. This has enabled the Club to continue to fulfil its current midweek fixtures while allowing young members to play as much cricket as they wish without the cost burdens of having to play cricket.
Two Club members took the opportunity to travel to Australia to play cricket to further develop their cricketing skills this winter. The Trust has funded their travel costs to Australia and contributed to other associated costs. The opportunity for the Club’s young members to play cricket in different countries and under different conditions will prove invaluable in their future cricketing careers.
