Your story

Dedicated volunteers make cricket accessible to the local children.

Group introduction

Sutton Vikings are junior cricketers who play for Sutton in Craven CC. We started to recruit in 2015. We play in the upper Airedale junior cricket league and currently have a team in U9, U11, and U13 age groups. The whole ethos of the teams is to encourage children to learn the game of cricket whilst having fun. We want to encourage children to enjoy sport, whilst improving their physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing. Improving their social skills and building friendships.

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

Being a new group we are having to fund raise for equipment, to be able to train the children and enable them to play matches. This would help the children we have at the moment, and those we recruit in the future.

"My children really look forward to playing, they talk about cricket all the time.
