Our income from all sources declined due to Covid 19. We want to raise £20,000 to help us survive and also attract new members.

Stockport Trinity Cricket Club are a friendly and inclusive club based in Bramhall, Cheshire.  We have over 100 members, ranging from 6 years old to adults.

Over the last 10-12 years we have - through the hard work of our volunteer members - been able to grow significantly.   From a small club that turned out two adult sides on Saturdays and a single age-group junior team to where we are now - a well-known and valued member of our local community with cricket taking place on the ground 7 days / week for most of the summer.

A significant stimulus for our growth was the incorporation of a Women's team in 2011.   The Stockport Trinity Women's XI are amongst the most successful teams in the county and we are proud to be able to be able to encourage more women and girls to get involved in cricket and provide them with a pathway from first steps, through social cricket right the way to representative county cricket.

How You Can Help

Despite being a tough year off the field, 2020 saw continued success for our teams on the pitch.   However, Coronavirus has had a big impact on our development.

We have been striving to improve our facilities for our members for years, and invested in upgrading the interior of our pavilion in early 2020.   Unfortunately, social distancing guidelines meant that we were almost completely unable to use it.    Based on current guidelines and timelines it looks like this will be the case for most of the 2021 season.

Developing our junior members' skills and enjoyment of the game is vitally important to our growth and survival.  However, we've been completely unable to run cricket-based activities since October.

We want to bounce-back and make improvements to our facilities so that our players, supporters and parents can enjoy as much cricket as possible during the 2021 season.

Our Aim is to:

  • Expand and improve the viewing area outside of the pavilion - currently it is small and unless supporters bring their own seating they have to stand to watch.

  • Refurbish the practice nets.  With so few opportunities to practice, these facilities will be in great demand.  They were already in need of new netting and a clean-up, but with your help we will be able to extend the playing area so that they are able stand up to more use - even when it has been wet during the week.

  •  Improve the scoreboard and our kit storage.  Some years ago one of our members built our current scoreboard from some leftover fence panels.  The numbers are getting worn out and scorers deserve a better place to sit for hours at a time. Our 'tin shed' leaks in wet weather, meaning we have to move kit out into the main pavilion.   Dry storage and a modern scoreboard (and improved viewing for scorers) will be a huge step forward

Local Support

Stockport Trinity Cricket Club has made the ground available to its neighbours during lockdown as a safe open air space for exercise and open air.   

Over the last few years we have built strong connections with our local schools - offering the ground for open-air activities during the summer.    In typical summers we offer a taster sessions for our local primary school, Nevill Road, who will bring entire year groups at a time to enjoy sessions run by our club coaches.   

In 2020 our junior cricketers put their spare time in lock-down to good use - videoing their socially distanced back-garden and park cricket in order to raise funds for our local foodbank.

We want to build on this in 2021, but our facilities need to support the activity.
