Gedling Colliery Cricket Club was formed in 1903. We run three Saturday teams in the South Notts Cricket League, a Sunday team in the Newark Alliance, and a Development team which helps give our junior players their first taste of senior cricket. We have a thriving junior section with over 100 members, offering Kwik Cricket from age 7, plus hardball teams from under 11s to under 15s. We have a successful girls squad, and run the ECB All Stars and Dynamos programmes. We also have a ladies softball squad.
Like so many clubs around the country, we were unable to start playing cricket until mid July this year. The Covid-19 pandemic has also meant that we have not been able to organise any fund raising activities throughout the season. We had plans to upgrade our outdoor net facilities by installing artificial grass for the bowlers run ups, as well as making improvements to our scoreboard. We would also really like to purchase a new bowling machine for use by both senior and junior members.
We have therefore decided to set up this Crowdfunding project, as we will receive matched funding from the Sport England Active Funding project if we are able to raise at least 50% of the £6,000 target ourselves. We are offering a number of rewards for donations, as detailed to the right of this page. Whether you are a business keen to support a local club, a junior or senior player looking to receive a discount on next year's subs, an ex-player wanting to help their club, or just someone who wants to aid a good cause - your donation would be very much appreciated.
We look forward to running a successful campaign, and will keep you updated as to how we are progressing - thanks for helping us meet our target!
