The coronavirus crisis wiped out the majority of Junior cricket in 2020. We are raising funds to re-launch our junior section in 2021.

by Mark Cook in Thirsk, England, United Kingdom

Thirsk Cricket Club is a community based club with four senior teams and four junior teams and has been the hub of the local community since 1851. All teams are mixed gender and play within the York, Nidderdale and Hambleton leagues.


Testing Times

The coronavirus crisis wiped out the majority of the junior cricket in the 2020 season through the restrictions which lasted to 4 July. These also affected the club through significantly reduced income, through lost memberships, sponsors and match day income.  

The full effects of coronavirus means we risk loosing a generation of young cricketers who have not had the opportunity to experience playing our great game.


Our Appeal

To combat this, in 2021 we are re-launching our junior section. To do this we need to raise funds to promote the club, attract new players and offer great interactive sessions. This will benefit the local community and help everyone get active.

We are hoping to run junior age groups from 5 to 15 years old with teams competing in the Hambleton Junior League. 

How will we invest in our club

Donations received will be put to very good use. As a financially secure club we will be able to continue to develop our cricket offering to the community. This will include;

  • Growing our All Stars capability, including the provision of coaches to supplement our own volunteers
  • Investing in new protective gear and coaching aids for our junior players
  • Improved playing facilities e.g. upgrade towards the cricket scorebox 

Thank you

We won’t succeed without your help. If the majority of members and parents could donate £10 we will go a long way to achieving our target, but please don't let that be the limit of your generosity should you wish to donate a larger sum! Please donate whatever you can to ensure the future for our wonderful club.
