Cricket clubs and leagues are now able to apply to two new funding schemes specifically designed to help see them through the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

If you believe that you are eligible to apply for a Return to Cricket grant (exceptional circumstances) then the contact for Kent is James Moss.

The measures are part of a £61m package designed to support the whole game, with ECB having also announced measures to help lower central costs, and protect jobs in the long-term.

ECB’s Director of Participation & Growth, Nick Pryde, said: “This is a very difficult time for our sport and for everyone involved in the recreational game across England and Wales.

“ECB understands the concerns of everyone involved in cricket and we want to be able to support. We hope that these Emergency Support Measures will be beneficial to you and your club.

“We would like to thank you for your efforts in working for your club, for your league and for the game throughout this difficult period, we understand it hasn’t been easy.

“All of us at ECB will continue to listen to the recreational game and work with you to help support and guide. Together we can help our game overcome this challenge.”
