The Gloucestershire Cricket Board (GCB) is responsible for all recreational cricket across the county, creating links between Schools, Clubs and the Community.
Based at the Bristol County Ground, the GCB also oversees a wide range of other areas including…
- County and District Youth Teams
- Coach Development
- Umpiring and Scoring
- Disability Cricket
The Board is led by Chief Executive Steve Silk and consists of nine full-time members of staff, five part-time employees and a large 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 national programmes, participation, club accreditation, club members, coaching roles, volunteer roles, player development and many others.
In the last year the GCB has coached more than 6000 children in nearly 200 schools, trained more than 200 new coaches and activators and ran more than 30 representative teams.
