LCCC Foundation supporting young County cricketers
The LCCC Foundation has provided a £25,000 Development Fund Grant to support The Lancashire Cricket Board to provide elite level age group cricketers with coaching and competition opportunities during the 2015 season.
The Lancashire Cricket Board is responsible for all junior County Squads and the Emerging Players Programme which feeds into the County Club Academy. The funding being provided by the LCCC Foundation will help to support this annual programme, providing the best young cricket talent from across Lancashire with access to the best quality coaching and competition opportunities to develop their skills and help them to progress.
Sandy Mitchell, Head of Community Development for the LCCC Foundation said “To be able to support the best young talent in the County is important to the LCCC Foundation. The project 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 said “Our Performance Department’s County Age Group Programme, is a crucial part of what we do. Home grown players are important to the County and the work feeding into the Academy is therefore essential. I thank our Colleagues within the Foundation for recognising this and contributing to the Performance Department philosophy of Developing Players in a Winning Environment”
