Record number of clubs receive ECB Small Grants

A record 30 Gloucestershire clubs have benefited through this year’s ECB Small Grant Scheme.

£90, 000 – more money than ever before – has been allocated to projects supporting at least one of the ECB’s four main national programmes – All Stars Cricket, U19 T20, Get The Game On and developing women’s cricket.

The ECB funding has been supplemented by £6, 000 from the Gloucestershire Cricket Board to ensure more clubs could benefit from the scheme.

The grants awarded range from £1,455 for Westbury-On-Severn to £4, 000 for Birdlip & Brimpsfield, Cinderford St John,  Dymock, Winterbourne, Twyford House and Frenchay CCs. For details of all the clubs who have been successful this year see the table below.

This year the GCB received grant requests from 47 clubs totalling £137, 102. Unfortunately this meant that the clubs who received Small Grants in 2017 missed out in 2018.

GCB chief executive Steve Silk said: “

We are delighted that the increased funding has allowed us to support a record number of clubs through the ECB Small Grants Scheme. We look forward to seeing the projects come to fruition.

“We would like to have been able to fund all the applications we received but due to reduce the risk of clubs not being able to fulfil their project  if they received significantly less than 90% of the costs,  we made the decision to only support clubs that did not receive Small Grants in 2017.” - Steve Silk
