Somerset clubs benefit from record amount of funding through the ECB Small Grants Scheme

The amount of £75,000 – more money than ever before – has been allocated to Somerset club 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.

In total, the Somerset Cricket Board received applications totalling requests for £108,307.00 worth of funding to the SGS.

The ECB Small Grant Scheme itself is a wonderful scheme and has enabled the Board to support 25 club projects in 2018.
By aligning the scheme to national intiatives this year's scheme has provided a great way to reward and recognise the clubs that are supporting those initiatives and are really looking to drive participation in one of the ECB's recognised growth areas. 

Project themes ranged from traditonal projects such as covers, through to innovative ideas and themes to improve family friendly facilities both inside and outside of the club facilities.
