Although it may seem that the development of junior Cricket across Gloucestershire is the major priority a lot of work also goes in to the development of cricket clubs and the leagues in which they play. Gloucestershire Cricket Board had a dedicated Senior Club and Competitions Development Group which is tasked in developing many projects for the adult game.
The County is able to offer a very high standard of cricket for its senior clubs on a Saturday within a pyramid system:
The Adult Cricket that is on offer within Gloucestershire is fantastic for any newcomer who wants to play or for a young player who is starting his adult playing career. A large proportion of clubs run up to 4 teams, and in some cases 5, catering for all ability levels and desired standards.
At the moment the SC&CDG are working hard to improve the standard of adult cricket by working on 3 priority areas:
- League Structure
- Umpire Development
- Facility Improvements
The work area of League structure has recently received a great deal of time with the outcome being a letter send from the ECB to all clubs across Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire asking for their feedback on 3 proposals. The Club Cricket letter can be seen by clicking on the link.
