COVID-19 hits hard. This is now about survival.


COVID-19 has hit us hard and stopped all plans for this season. With no cricket we have no income. This is now about survival.

We have set up a project on the ECB approved Spacehive Crowdfunding site. The project is to maintain the oval, square and wicket throughout the summer so that it remain a viable cricket area when the next opportunity to play occurs. It could have been one of many projects we have but if we have no cricket then we have no income.

We were aiming to introduce 100 new children to cricket this summer through our All Stars, Dynamos and Quik Cricket programmes. As we can't properly maintain the square and pitches areas now we are in trouble. If the square and pitches are not maintained correctly then many years of hard work will go up in a cloud of dust. The Allet square mower will cost £800 to renovate and the roller £900. All labour is supplied by our volunteers and our groundsman who is currently donating his time for free. Any help towards our survival project would be very gratefully accepted.

What we'll deliver:

  • 16 cricket pitches
  • A cricket square
  • A cricket outfield

Why it's a great idea:
Our area needs a cricket centre to create new cricketing opportunities for all ages of boys and girls, their parents and grand parents. This project will ensure that following has playable areas: All Stars Cricket 5-8 years Dynamos Cricket 8-11 year old Kwik cricket sessions 8-11 years Development U15 cricket teams

Steps to get it done:

  • Repair of the Allet Mower
  • Repair of the roller

Anyway we are at the start of a long journey. Please help us on our way by donating at the link below.
