Port Talbot Town Cricket Club granted £2000 from SwansAid
Port Talbot Town Cricket Club have this month been announced as one of the winners of a SwansAid grant.
The local cricket club will receive a grant of £2,000 for equipment that will help them coach more young cricketers in the area.
Formed in 1964 and run by volunteers, Port Talbot Town CC places huge importance on the development of its younger players which impressed the SwansAid panel.
In addition to its four junior teams at U11, U13, U15 and U17 level consisting of both boys and girls, Port Talbot Town also runs coaching sessions for budding young cricketers at U7 and U9 level.
“We are delighted with the news to have had the grant,” said Club Patron Raymond Cox. “We received £2000 that will be spent on a water removal hog and a roll on roll off portable cricket coaching net.
“These items will enable the club to play and coach more cricket to our junior and senior cricketers,” he continued.
Joining Port Talbot Town CC in receiving a SwansAid grant are Mumbles Lifeguard Club, Tumble Family Centre and Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services, who will all be presented with their funding in the New Year.
