A few words from Club Chairman, Andy Bullmore, about where the club stands at the present time and its future direction.

SPONSORSHIP

Sponsors are vital to the club. Here's who is sponsoring us in 2015 and a selection of ways new and existing sponsors can lend their support.

ENDON FUTURE

Take a look at how the club is planning to shape itself in the next decade and beyond. Immediate aims and longer-term objectives.

SUPPORTING SCHOOLS

Endon's local schools are greatly valued by the club as a source of new participation. Take a look at our "Open Door" schools policy.

Set in beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands countryside, Endon Cricket Club looks to establish itself as a major community asset, serving both Endon and a wider surrounding area not just as a sporting facility but also as a positive contributor to the local environment.

The club, in recent years, has concentrated on developing its junior section and has, since 2010, fielded six different junior teams across the age groups. The junior development has brought in many enthusiastic parents who form a formidable volunteer force, sustain a vibrant social scene and make a significant financial contribution to the club.

A growing band of enthusiastic and well-qualified coaches, now at a count of ten, strive to churn out a stream of talented and honed young players. In recent years Endon has had numerous youngsters selected to county level as well as many others representing the district.

Increased revenue and an ECB loan has allowed the club to buy an adjoining field which, in 2014, underwent considerable development. A top specification artificial pitch was laid by Dura-Sport and the remaining playing surface should be of an equally high specification in 2015 after a winter of ground improvements. With some amazing voluntary efforts from present and former club members, the main field was extended and levelled into the top field to make the size of the primary playing facility more suitable for top class cricket and to allow the boundary rope to be extended for both playing areas. The developments should allow more cricket activity in 2015 and beyond and a consequent increase in membership and participants.

By constantly seeking to improve our amenities, serving the community and nuturing a constant flow of well-trained junior players into senior cricket, the club hopes to develop a mainstream facility which can hold itself equal to the top-flight clubs in the county.

Plans are already being considered for further improvements. The club house and parking facilities are a way forward to increasing the club's revenue from a range of potential usages. If you have any further ideas for improving the facility then please let us know.

 

We are always looking for sponsors, large or small, to help fulfil the club's ambitions.
