We need to survive the Covid-19 epidemic to continue with our plans to improve our facilities at Bawtry Road by the provision of another ground on the old Aurora site.

This project was funded on 18 May 2020!

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:

  • Additional cricket facilities on Bawtry Road
  • Community Access
  • Junior and Women's Cricket

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:

  • Playing cricket on the old Aurora Ground

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.
