Brigg Cricket - Artificial Wicket and Winter Training

(North/South Humberside)

Cricket in Brigg has a long history. Due to aging facilities participation is under threat. SJN School plans to buy a mobile cricket cage, throw down cricket wicket & indoor cricket mats so that training can take place year round, in all weather. The equipment will support the school, Brigg Cricket Club, the Briggensians & other local cricket clubs.

    An excellent idea to provide facilities for SJN school and the wider community in Brigg. This will help cement obvious and desirable links between the school and those it serves. It also encourages the widest participation in our national game.

    There is a long history of cricket being played in Brigg both at Brigg Cricket Club and on the field at the at the SJN, formerly Brigg Grammar School. At the moment BCC are having to play their home games outside of Brigg and the school urgently requires investment in new facilities so that their students and local people can continue to play cricket on their field. We are really hoping that people support our nomination by voting and help to keep cricket alive in the town.

    This will be a great facility for the Brigg Community and encourage youngsters to play this excellent national game. Well done Sir John Nelthorpe School for taking the initiative.

    Thank you Martin. There are a lot of people in and around Brigg who are working really hard to keep cricket alive in the town. In the case of this grant nomination all we need is as many people as possible to take 5 minutes to register and vote. Everyone single vote is important.
