Junior Cricket - Guernsey and Isle of Man
In 2018 Ravenscroft became the sponsor of the Guernsey Cricket Future Stars initiative, aimed at encouraging youngsters to develop a passion for cricket. The programme, which is for girls and boys aged from five to eight, introduces the skills of cricket through various fun based drills.
The programme has been hugely successful on the island and in 2022, 150 youngsters took part in the summer or winter programmes. Ravenscroft and Guernsey Cricket are continuing their partnership through to 2023 and more information can be found here
Following the success in Guernsey, we approached the Isle of Man cricket board to develop a partnership for its CricStart programme, which covers CricKids for youngsters aged 3 – 6, CricSoft for those between six and 10, CricFit for 14+, the batting and bowling clinics as well as women’s and girls’ cricket.
‘The support from Ravenscroft is incredible as it allows us to offer more sessions and develop our plans so that as many young people as possible can enjoy the sport, learn new skills and enjoy the camaraderie of a team sport.’ said IOMCA development officer Greig Wright.
