Providing support and funding to cricket clubs across the country as they return to cricket.
After last years All Stars Cricket Success, this year Fleckney Village Cricket Club are expanding their kids cricket section to 8-11 year olds. The ECB have launched Dynamos Cricket and we are bringing it to our great village. We have several qualified coaches and lot of kids interested but we dont quite have the correct pitch to play one. "Cant you just play on any cricket pitch of bit of grass?" we hear you say... sadly not quite. We need to produce an extra 'strip' (some might call it a wicket) to the correct specifications for younger cricketers at the top of our cricket field, then put a bit of fencing up along a hedge to prevent injury and of course ball loss after some big hits!!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We want to provide cricket in the village for everyone and, like most sports, this isnt cheap. We already rely on loads of volunteers to maintain our pitches, as well as coach the children and ensure their introduction to our fantastic sport is a happy and successful one. However the equipment, its upkeep and particularly its fuel seems to be going up in price steadily, and its getting more and more difficult to fund this ourselves. By taking on a Dynamos section, we will sadly feel the pinch a little bit more. But, we are going to do this!!! Fleckney Dynmaos will give kids in Fleckney a completely new and unique cricketing experience in the South Leicestershire sunshine. Such a pitch wont just be restricted to Dynamos, it'll be available for Ladies Softball, walking cricket, our family events and the All Stars. The fencing might just help our bigger cricketers too!!!
Steps to get it done:
