LCCC Foundation supporting Lancashire’s brightest U19 cricketers
The LCCC Foundation has provided a £3,000 Development Fund Grant to support The Lancashire Cricket Federation to provide competitive cricket opportunities for the Under 19 squad throughout the 2015 season.
The Lancashire Cricket Federation was formed in 1947 as a voluntary organisation to organise an U19 team comprising of the best schoolboy and club cricketers in Lancashire and continues as a voluntary body to this day, raising funds to provide competitive opportunities for the brightest and best U19 cricketers in Lancashire.
The 2015 programme includes matches against Durham and Middlesex at home, and against Warwickshire, Derbyshire and Yorkshire away as part of the 'Six Counties Cup'. This is only possible with help received from a number of bodies including the LCCC Foundation.
The LCCC Foundation aims to inspire communities through cricket and the funding they are providing will help to support the next generation of talented cricketers allowing them to fulfil their potential.
Sandy Mitchell, Head of Community Development for the LCCC Foundation said “To support the Lancashire Cricket Federation and the best young talent in the County compliments and enhances the great work already carried out by the LCCC Foundation, LCB and Lancashire County Cricket Club, helping to engage and inspire different sections of the community across all levels of the cricketing spectrum.”
Bobby Denning, Managing Director for the Lancashire Cricket Board added: “The LCB Performance Departments philosophy is to develop players in a winning environment and the support from our colleagues in the Foundation contributes towards the environment created. I thank the Foundation for their support and recognising this.”
