Providing support and funding to cricket clubs across the country as they return to cricket.
Sheffield United CC (currently playing as Sheffield and Phoenix United CC) have recently separated from Phoenix Sports and Social Club. We are working to improve our playing facilities at Bawtry Road and to redevelop the old Aurora Sports ground for community cricket. In order to continue with these plans we need to survive the Covid-19 epidemic which has destroyed our income for playing season 2020. We are working not just to make the old ground playable but to provide changing and tea facilities for players and umpires. We have been offered two portacabins by Yorkshire Cricket Baord and need funds to move these to and site them on the ground. This will complement our existing facilities on Bawtry Road Sheffield and provide a fantastic venue for recreational cricket in the future,
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The new facility will be a boost to the area providing opportunities for recreational cricket to the local community.
Steps to get it done:
Sheffield United Cricket Club is dedicated to providing recreational and competitive cricket to players of all ages, genders, races and ability. We take the community part of our role very seriously and it is at the heart of our mission.
