We hope to replace old equipment and dangerous sight screens, which are home built with a steel frame and easily tip over in the wind!

The Knaresborough Forest Cricket Club is run predominately by its own players and supported by just a few local sponsors, to which we are very grateful towards for their ongoing support.

Recently our Sport England small grant application to purchase some badly needed items (sight-screens) was DECLINED.  The main reason given was that they do not fund the replacement of existing equipment, even if these are no longer fit for purpose and/or dangerous!

Please show your support and generosity by kindly making a donation towards the cost of one or hopefully two new sight-screens from a local supplier (RRP £825+VAT each).   And if we do manage to meet our first target please don't think we no longer need your help, as we are just trying to set a realistic goal to get at least one new sight screen this year and hopefully another next year (if not sooner).

Any surplus funds raised will be put aside to be used improving our facilities and for the purchase of any other equipment required, as next year we plan to re-launch our junior section with new Under 9s and Under 11s teams as well as continuing with the fantastic All Stars Cricket programme.

Also, we are offering naming rights for each of the 8 or so vertical PVC "laths" that make up each sight-screen, with a £30 donation getting your name on one lath and £50 on two!  

Donate £150 and your name (or an approved one of your choosing), may adorn the sight-screen's base for the whole of the 2020 season.  Or chip-in £500 and your name (or just about anything you like) shall be engraved permanently into the base!
