A substantial grant from Sport England is set to benefit Lincolnshire cricket grounds.
The county branch of the Cricket Groundsman’s Association has received almost £10,000 to fund training and development of current and future groundsmen. And Lincolnshire could also benefit further from the provision of additional equipment (formerly known as the ECB Trailer).
The next phase will see the CGA approach training providers to design courses that will best suit the needs of the county’s groundsmen.
The plan is to hold two day courses in the north and south of the county in early spring, followed by post-season autumn courses.
Further information on this award will be available at the next meeting of the CGA which takes place at Lindum Cricket Club on October 29 at 7.30pm.
The speaker will be David Carter from DG Associates, the grant writer for this successful bid.
