To construct new practice facilities for 2022. Take part in a 10-second cricket keepy-uppy challenge or do your own fundraising activity.

The Cricket Club

Fulwood and Broughton Cricket Club has been an active member of the local community since 1909. Since that time thousands of people of all ages have enjoyed the warm and convivial atmosphere, playing cricket and socialising and making friends for life.

The Club has a thriving junior section, a women and girls' team, four senior teams and two midweek XIs. The first team now plays in the Northern Premier League.

Vision

After many, many years of discussion and debate, a long-term ambition has been realised and land adjoining to the east of the current ground has been purchased. The phased development seeks to construct new practice facilities (a four bay 30metre net lane), a new pitch and eventual clubhouse extension.

Why?

This development will allow the Club to offer more on-site practice and playing opportunities, enabling it to meet burgeoning local demand. The immediate population is increasing with more wanting to be involved in this great sport, but space limitation has been a perennial problem. 

With the new land and the long-term plan to transform this into a new pitch with playing, practice and changing accommodation, this is now the opportunity to make significant progress and firmly establish Fulwood and Broughton CC as the premier club in the area.

F&BCC has worked closely with local schools, leagues and the county foundation to ensure it offers a high quality inclusive, safe and secure environment and facilities. It recognises that in order to continue to do so these developments are significant to the overall vision.

How Covid has affected the Club

Owing to the restrictions, opportunities to open, raise funds and make progress towards provision of new facilities has been severely impacted.

There is now a plan in place to raise funds for the purchase and development of new practice facilities: a 4 lane netting area.

This would be located in the north east corner of the recently acquired land (see below). This would provide a superb practice area for all age groups, freeing up the current ground for more matches and other activities.

To make this dream come true we need your support.

We are running various activities and a keepy-uppy challenge from 25th June to late July. There will be prizes for winners selected by a draw from those who participate and enter.

The Ten Second Keepy-Uppy Challenge

To ENTER:

You will need any cricket bat and ball. Practise for ten seconds how many times you can bit the ball consecutively. If you miss/the ball falls on the floor you have to reset to zero. 

Film your best attempt and post it to your own page on this site. Five entrants will selected via a lucky dip will win a prize, to be carried out late August on President's Day.

Please take part, make a pledge or offer a reward. All support is gratefully received and we hope to open the new facilities in time for spring 2022.
