ECB County Grant Fund

The ECB County Grants Fund aims to support affiliated cricket clubs to create welcoming environments, provide enhanced facilities and playing opportunities for women, girls' & disability cricket, and to develop environmentally sustainable facilities.

Rising operating costs, based largely on the cost of energy and other utilities, has made it increasingly difficult for cricket clubs to keep afloat. Additionally in some cases where rurally located cricket clubs have had to operate without mains water and electricity there are now means of overcoming that hurdle.

The County Grants Fund aims to support ECB affiliated Cricket Clubs to create welcoming environments, provide enhanced facilities and playing opportunities, and to tackle climate change. Priority is given to applications from Clubs that are actively engaged with ECB programmes (All Stars, Dynamos, Women’s and Girls’ Cricket and / or Disability Cricket).

So far in 2023, Herefordshire Cricket Ltd have helped four Herefordshire clubs secure ECB grant money to make improvements to their club.

Colwall £10000 Creating Welcoming Environments - Disability ramp, Improving Women’s changing facilities, catering equipment and a new PA system.

Kington £5500 Tackling Climate Change - New Boiler

Burghill Tillington and Weobley £500 Disability Cricket Champion Club Grant and £1643 Creating Welcoming Environment - Refurbishment to floor in the tea room Brockhampton £5100 Tackling Climate Change - funding towards an electric mower

We look forward to seeing the improvements take shape over the winter.
