Norfolk Cricket Clubs Make Their Mark

Norfolk Cricket Clubs Make Their Mark

November 28th 2014 - Norfolk Cricket Clubs make their mark

 

Norfolk has maintained a substantial quota of ECB Clubmarked Clubs following another successful accreditation cycle in 2014. One new club has received accreditation for the first time, and with 12 others completing the renewal of their Accreditation, the number of clubs in the county with this significant award has increased to 36 clubs.

 

The total represents exactly one third of the total number of affiliated clubs in the county which is an excellent achievement, both for the clubs themselves, as well as the NCB who manage the programme locally.

 

Development Manager for the Norfolk Cricket Board, Kieron Tuck said, “The message of what Clubmark really is has definitely spread through these clubs and beyond. Clubs now realise that the process is not simply about box ticking, but about showing that their clubs has strong and effective management and is a safe place for young people to play the game. The Clubmark standard has enormous benefits for the club when it comes to promotion within the local community, and of course for funding and development.’

 

The new club was Dereham CC, and the clubs achieving Re-Accreditation were Hethersett & Tas Valley, Horsford, Mattishall, Mundford, Old Buckenham, Rocklands, Sheringham, Stow, Swanton Morley, Swardeston, Thetford and Vauxhall Mallards.

 

Tuck hopes that additional new clubs will come forward to apply for Accreditation. “It is important to recognise that Clubmark is not just for large clubs. It has significant benefits for smaller clubs too and the proportion of so called ‘smaller’ clubs in the Clubmark ranks is very pleasing. We are also increasingly using our Clubmark work to support clubs with other ongoing development work so this is a great opportunity for them to develop in a range of ways.”
