It gives me great pleasure to announce that SKLP Cricket Club passed a successful site visit on Sun 3rd April and as a result the club has been awarded Clubmark re-accreditation starting from 2015.
The award has a 3 year duration but the most important element is that colts can now participate in league cricket for the foreseeable future.
This would not have been possible but from great support and hard work from the clubs EC in gaining the award again.
I have to also add the amazing turn out from our colts and their parents for the site visit. The ground conditions where more suited for swimming let alone cricket on a crisp sunny Sunday morning, but not a single compliant – I think the lovely chai along with gelabi and ghatia did the trick.
The center management team did their utmost best in providing good ground conditions but no one can turn off rain.
With this award, both the English Cricket Board (ECB) and Middlesex County Cricket (MCC) board see the club as a professionally run outfit that has all the safety elements, the right level of coaching and the backbone for running a colts academy for a long time.
The award also opens doors for the club in terms of grants and this is something we will be reviewing. Rest assured, lessons have been learnt from the past and these will not be repeated.
On behalf of the clubs EC, I would like to thank you for your support.
