SUEZ Funding Success for Stretford

We are very pleased to announce some good news which is definitely needed in the current climate.

The club received confirmation from SUEZ Communities Trust that we have been successful in our bid to secure funding for our ground improvement plan.

The club has been awarded £33,000 in order to relay the playing square and we would like to thank SUEZ for supporting our bid.

We are still waiting to hear from ECB and GMCL about the season however we are planning on commencing cricket playing at some point this year and therefore works on the square will hopefully begin at the end of August.

The club had to provide a third party contribution to the award. We would sincerely like to thank everyone who kindly donated towards our project after watching our long suffering groundsman Ian Holding in an appeal video we filmed in October. It really tugged on the heart strings and we have raised over two thousand pounds towards our goal. Plans will be made to raise the remaining funds when we have more advice on social gatherings.

In the meantime online donations are still possible at our gofundme page

Thanks to the members who worked so hard on the funding application and we hope to have more positive news soon
