North Newton CC 

North Newton Cricket Club are a Clubmark accredited club founded in 1946 offering opportunities for all ages and genders to play cricket. We have a thriving junior section, an adult women’s team and two Saturday Men’s XI. We are affiliated to the Somerset Cricket Board (SCB) and work with them to ensure best practices are in place to develop and deliver high quality community cricket in a safe, effective and child-friendly way.

The Club is also proud to have started a thriving women’s soft ball section in 2019 playing friendly and league matches. 1618695452_nncc_women_2.jpg

North Newton CC in 2020 

With the Covid-19 pandemic cancelling most of the 2020 cricket season our usual sources of funding were seriously curtailed with a significant portion of our annual income heavily reduced. We are hopeful that in 2021 we will be able to play a full season of cricket but with Covid-19 restrictions still in place we will not be able to run a full programme of fundraising events.

As a Club we are looking to use the funds raised from our crowdfunding campaign on a number of planned improvements to the safety and quality of our ground and facilities for the benefit of our members and the community.

During the 2020 season vital fund raising events like Club day were unable to go ahead. 

How will the money raised be spent

· Purchase of Gazebos for the use of players while our pavilion remains out of use due to Covid-19 restrictions. Please see article below from ECB website outlining a similar example.

· The installation of new fencing at the East side of the ground to improve safety of spectators and play area users.

· Replacement of a section of damaged wooden perimeter fencing on the North side of the ground.


· Procurement of equipment to improve the training facilities for our ladies, senior and youth members. In particular the purchase of Junior protective equipment to help with the transition from softball to hard ball cricket. 


· Replacement of netting on our mobile net cage


· Help towards the general maintenance of the ground including the procurement of replacement grounds maintenance equipment. 

The Club will maintain where possible its usual fundraising streams to ensure we can cover the usual running costs of the Club.

Thank you for any donations big or small, everyone at North Newton Cricket Club appreciates your support in these strange times.

Achieving our target will allow us to continue providing safe sporting facilities for the local area and allow our junior and senior cricketers and members to use the facilities to their full potential in 2021.
