Cricket clubs in Norfolk have been taking full advantage of the increasing opportunities for grant-funded development projects.
The Norfolk Cricket Board has advised on around 20 club projects in the last 12 months. Of particular note are new artificial net facilities at Old Buckenham and North Runcton, funded largely with money from the England & Wales Cricket Board.
Clubs have also enjoyed considerable success with the Sport England Small Grants scheme, which unlike ECB funding, does not require them to be a Focus Club, but simply affiliated to the NCB. Norfolk clubs who have had significant success with this funding stream recently include Brooke, Downham, Fakenham, Norwich, Old Buckenham, Hethersett & Tas Valley, Vauxhall Mallards, Blundes-ton, Cromer and Aylsham St Giles.
Kieron Tuck, cricket development manager for Norfolk said: 'It's great to see so many clubs putting together well planned and ambitious projects to develop their facilities and club programmes, and we're delighted to support and advise them in how to plan and fund these improvements.'
