Any extra money raised will go towards the continual costs of improving the club and the facilities it provides to the local community.


Ashcombe Park CC is a community cricket club in Cheddleton, a village in the Staffordshire Moorlands near to the market town of Leek. We serve a wide, semi-rural area and the club itself provides a significant social hub for the local community.

 In recent year's we've enjoyed significant growth thanks to the efforts of club members, most notably increasing the size of the Junior Section from around 25 youngsters (aged between 8 and 16) to around 75. 

Through the ECB All Stars programme we have attracted approximately 40 children under 8s for their first taste of cricket and, for many, their first experience of any team sport in a club setting. 

 In 2018 we've also fielded our first ladies and girls only sides who have competed in a series of festivals. 

 We've also run an over-45 team for the first time to encourage new and ex-players to try or return to the sport. Even those not wanting to play competitively have participated in weekly training sessions to improve their fitness.

At the same time we have strengthened links with local schools and other sports clubs to encourage them to use our facilities.

Our current ground keeping equipment is now to old and no longer fit for purpose. We had hoped for a huge year of fund raising in 2020 however the Covid19 pandemic stopped us completely in our tracks. The money that we had planned to generate with a fantastic lineup of events was no longer incoming. The pandemic also affected sponsorship payments which are usually incoming into the club. Also the cancellation of all junior fixtures cut off a huge revenue stream for the club. 

All monies raised through the crowdfunded will go towards driving forward the continued development of the facilities at the club and will benefit the whole of our community.
