Help change Cornish Cricket
Do You Have A Passion For Cricket, For Engaging Young People with Cricket and For Sport in Cornwall? Then Join Us On Our Journey and Make a Real Difference!
Cornwall Cricket is setting up a new charitable entity and needs some enthusiastic individuals to help us to hit the ground running.
Did you know that, compared to other “Minor Counties”, the number of cricketers from the Duchy who make the step up to First Class County and even Test Match status is presently below the national average? Did you know that Cornwall has a successful Women’s team but they need a full time coach and team manager as well as proper funding to ensure that they can fulfil their fixtures? Did you also know that the number of Cricket Clubs in Cornwall is at its lowest level since 1968? Do you want to be part of a team which changes all of this for the better?
We are looking for volunteers to help us change the face of cricket in the Duchy. Our aim is to;
- find and develop emerging young cricketers, giving them the chance to improve their skills and provide them with the chance to progress;
- expand and promote disability cricket within the county;
- boost participation within women’s and girl’s cricket and, finally;
- keep our local club network afloat. Many Clubs are located in small villages and sit at the heartbeat of their local communities. They are wholly dependent on dedicated volunteers to survive but need to replace aging machinery and ground equipment and to maintain facilities such as Clubhouses and Scoreboxes.
Previous charitable sector experience is helpful but not necessarily vital but we need volunteers who can devote time to help us with this exciting new opportunity. The new entity will work closely with the Cornwall Cricket Board but will be legally and financially independent. As a first step, Cornwall Cricket is aiming to identify up to five independent Trustees.
Of interest? Like to find out more? Want to help to provide more opportunities for youngsters to play cricket (and to help boost participation in all areas of the sport across Cornwall)? Want to know more about how you could help to transform the way cricket at all levels is promoted and supported in Cornwall?
Contact Simon Menneer (CEO Cornwall Cricket Board – CEO@cornwallcricket.co.uk) or Chris Fyles (Director of Finance Cornwall Cricket Board – email@example.com) – we would be more than happy to meet for an exploratory chat.
