Sutton Cricket Club By Sutton Cricket Club

We are a local cricket club in the heart of Sutton, a small community in St Helens, looking for funding to renovate our current outdoor netting facilities.

St Helens Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Our netting facilities are currently not fit for purpose and in need of immediate renovation as they are over 20 years old. The nets are crucial to providing first class cricket coaching to local children aged 5 upwards. The nets are also used by our recently launched women’s and girl’s teams. We rely almost entirely on fundraising and the generosity of our playing members and families to be able to keep going year on year. However, we currently can’t afford the cost of the renovation, which is why we are reaching out to the local community and beyond to try and raise the funds required.

What we'll deliver:

  • Brand new outdoor cricket netting facilites

Why it's a great idea:

The installation of brand new nets will enable the club to attract more and more local kids and adults to play cricket. We also have ECB qualified coaches who will be able to deliver much better training sessions and use the nets to bring on both our junior section and our newly formed womens and girls teams.

Steps to get it done:

  • Reach £10,000 donations to match an ECB grant so that we can instruct contractors to begin work.
