Based at The Brightside Ground, Bristol, the GCB also oversees a wide range of other areas including county and district youth teams, coach education, umpiring and scoring, groundsmanship and disability cricket.
The Board is led by chief executive Steve Silk and consists of eight full-time members of staff, six part-time employees and an ever growing number of freelance coaches and volunteers.
Affiliated to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) its goal is to develop a fun and enabling environment in which more people in Gloucestershire play and are involved in cricket.
In order to meet its requirements for ECB funding the GCB must meet agreed annual targets around participation, club accreditation, club members, coaching roles, volunteer roles, player development and many others.
They are supported in their aims by a number of partners including Chance to Shine, the Lord’s Taverners, The Medlock Trust (Sitec) and county sports partnerships Active Gloucestershire and WESPORT.
In the last year the GCB has coached more than 6000 children in nearly 200 schools, trained more than 220 new coaches and young leaders and run 35 representative teams.
