by Steve Dannatt in Corse, England, United Kingdom

For those of you that are familiar with our Club....

If you can see the ways of contributing down the right hand side or by clicking on the Rewards option at the top....please jump straight in....

...but if you would like to know a bit more about us, please have a read below.

Our History

Founded in 1895, the Club had a number of temporary homes prior to finding a home at the newly acquired Playing Fields in 1952. This was a far different world from the present; man had not landed on the moon and the thought of motorised rollers, sightscreens and electronic scoreboards seemed a similar fantasy. This has all been achieved together with the progression of the Club to its highest playing standard in 2013, the West of England Premier League(WEPL). The team finished 2nd in the Gloucester Division of the WEPL League in 2019 and were looking forward to pushing for promotion in 2020. In addition to the 1st XI, the club has senior 2nd and 3rd teams playing weekend league cricket as well as two mid-week teams.

The introduction of a Junior Section in 1997 has been key to this achievement and from a small beginning the Section now boasts 80+ members and is a recognised ECB Focus Club. 

The vast majority of the highly talented 1st XI has progressed through the Junior Section, a source of great pride to us, see if you can spot some of them in the picture below.

The Junior Section has representative teams for boys and girls from Under 9 through to Under 17 and we run the ECB All Stars Programme and were about to run the inaugural Dynamos programme until it was put on pause due to the current Covid situation.

The addition of a Ladies Section in 2002 further cemented the wonderful family atmosphere that is enjoyed by everyone connected with the Club.

The Club’s Mission is to “Provide High Quality, Sporting Cricket for All”.

Club stays together despite Covid

The impact of Covid on the club

The club relies on volunteers taking on most of the responsibilities at the club. 

In addition to this, each year, we incur significant costs that include fees for use of the pavilion and playing fields, preparing and maintaining the ground, pitch and facilities & equipment pre and post season, insuring the club, paying for the utilities and upkeep of the building and making sure that when everyone turns up to play or to train, that we are able to do so.

Normally, all of these costs are covered by the subscription and membership fees, bar profits, social events and fund raising and of course the sponsorship that we receive from local businesses. 

However, this year, whilst we have or will have incurred many of these costs, we have not had the income available to cover them, meaning that the club is being significantly stretched financially, and we will have a deficit of over £10,000.

IMPORTANT! - Sport England will match whatever you give!

In addition to what you give, we are in the process of seeking approval for a Sport England fund-match, so they will effectively double whatever we raise up to £10k - this means that if you can help us get to our target, every £1 you are able to pledge would be worth £2, increasing our confidence that we will be able to cope this year, and start next season positively. However, if we don't reach our contribution of £10k, they won't give us anything at all, so it really is in all of interests to push to meet the overall goal! 

IMPORTANT

If you're paying a membership donation, please pay for each member of your family separately and use a different email address if you can - thanks.
