Club Support Offer (affiliation)

Our Club Support Offer is support package available for club by affiliating to the Somerset Cricket Board.

Our club affiliation package for 2019 through our Club Support Offer has now been launched.

What are the key benefits of the Club Support Offer?

We have simplified our offer into four main areas:

  • Funding
  • Support and advice
  • Training
  • Playing

As part of these four areas you can access a number of benefits which include:

  • Support setting up and maintaining a Women & Girls Section at your club
  • Cricket World Cup Small Grants Scheme for clubs to bid for funding of £1,000.
  • Subsidised access to courses for officials and volunteers.
  • Access to our community coaching team.
  • Automatic membership to the Somerset Groundsman’s Association.
  • Two Free Tickets to a Royal London 50 Over game at  The Cooper Associates County Ground.

Full details of all the benefits of affiliation can be found in the full Club Affliation Document 2019 .

How do we take advantage of the Club Support Offer?

Affiliation to the Somerset Cricket Board costs just £10 per club, plus £25 for each adult weekend league team on you main match day.

Those clubs who only play friendly or midweek cricket are able to access Club Support for just £10!

To take advantage of the Club Support Offer:

  1. Please pay your club invoice for affiliation which will have been sent to your club via accounts@somersetcricketboard.org. This invoice is based on the number of senior teams you have entered into local leagues for 2019. If this information has changed and your invoice is no longer accurate, please email- matthewcounsell@somersetcricketboard.org.
  2. Complete our club contact questionnaire via your club’s play-cricket website. For 2019 our aim is to reduce administration for clubs who are historically asked several times for contact details by different leagues and competitions. By completing this questionnaire, which is in the admin page of your play-cricket website, the contact information is automatically available to all the leagues and competitions that you enter (who use play-cricket). It is vitally important that your club completes the questionnaire, so we can communicate with your club accurately about the latest information on the recreational game, courses for volunteers, funding opportunities, Somerset age group trials plus much more. There is a Play-Cricket Help Guide to assist with completing the questionnaire & accessing Play-Cricket if required 

The contact details you input through the questionnaire will be kept in accordance with our GDPR policy. Your club will then need to decide whose contact details (if any) you’d like to be available to visitors on your play-cricket site.

All affiliation fees collected are used by the Somerset Cricket Board to improve our support for cricket clubs and recreational cricket in the county.

Please note, if your club is playing cricket this summer then they must affiliate to ensure that you are registered with the ECB and qualify to play in most cricket leagues in the county, SCB KO Cups or ECB competitions.
