Delighted to announce that The Wicket Whippets CC (@WicketWhipCC) have joined us as an Affiliated Club which basically means that we will look to jointly promote the joy of cricket as a sport for all, and where we can we’ll help each other out by providing players.
About Ellingham Cricket Club
A new club run by the It’s Just
Not Cricket (@justnotcrkpod) guys they are, as their logo – designed by our Ambassador and Director of Cricket Rob Franks – very much into Animal Welfare.
They are based officially in Middlesex: The Clubhouse, Station Road, Radlett, WD7 8JX but like ourselves are of no fixed abode ground wise, although they are currently playing out of Paddington Recreational Ground
We will be helping them develop their club and the plan is to play an annual game to raise awareness of and funds for the Animal Welfare Causes which we support.
About Our Affiliated Club Programme
Pretty much every charity/wandering cricket club has an issue with player availability: with more and more players extending their club careers with the growth of both Development Teams and County Seniors Cricket finding players for the conventional Sunday or Mid Week Fixture is harder, and the resultant lack of fixtures can make it hard for players to justify membership of a second club.
One way that we at No Boundaries Cricket Club can help is through our Affiliated Cricket Club Programme: basically we pool resources with similar clubs to ensure that together we can put out a team.
Rather like the Barbarians the players will wear ‘their’ Team Kit and the awareness and fundraising will benefit all Affiliated Clubs.
This is a great way to give your club members access to more games each season without having to put out a full team each time and make all the arrangements.
If would like to discuss with get in touch via the Contact Page. Please note you MUST be a properly structured and registered Club (Community Amateur Sports Club), Charity, Community Interest Company or similar with accounts, constitution, officials and be able to demonstrated proper accountability as we will not allow the charities we are working with to be exposed to any form of potential embarrassment.
