Clydach Cricket Club receive SwansAid grant
Clydach Cricket Club recently received a grant of £1,763 after successfully applying to Swansea City’s grant-giving pot, SwansAid.
Presented by members of the Community Trust, along with Lee Trundle, the cricket club based at Waverley Park, will use the grant to fund an array of new training equipment for their youth teams.
“The grant will provide a lot of good quality training equipment for the junior section, which will be used extensively on Friday practice sessions and also pre-match practice in the weekday evenings,” said David Vaughan from Clydach Cricket Club.
“The better the quality and variety of the equipment, the more varied and interesting the practice sessions can be made,” he continued.
Established over a century ago in 1892, the cricket club runs three senior sides but also has a strong junior set up that impressed the SwansAid panel.
With sides at Under 9 through to Under 17 age levels, all playing in the South Wales Junior Cricket League, the junior section caters for around 80 young boys and girls.
Striving to develop their wealth of youth talent, Clydach Cricket Club aims to be a fully inclusive club that is open to all.
Additionally, the club was awarded the prestigious ECB Clubmark in 2012 confirming that the club provides a safe place for youngsters to play cricket supervised by experienced coaches.
The grant will therefore enable the cricket club to continue to deliver beneficial and stimulating coaching sessions to its array of youth players.
