Founded in 1807, Liverpool Cricket Club is the oldest amateur sports club in Merseyside and is home to 21 different cricket teams.

However, the facilities at the ground have not been updated in over twenty years.

The nets are becoming a safety issue for players, preventing cricketers from developing their skills and training properly.

Without funding, the nets are at risk of becoming completely unusable.


Peter, Junior Coordinator at LCC, said: “The nets are torn and uneven. They get very slippy which makes it hard for the bowlers run up. They are completely unusable for wet weather.

“Nets are key to practicing batting and bowling.

“They allow multiple players to practice safely at the same time. With 17 hardball junior and adult teams, it isn’t practicable to prepare and maintain enough grass wicket surfaces to play on.”

£616 has been raised on the clubs fundraiser page so far towards their £20,000 target.

The club are hoping more people from the local community will continue to contribute.

Peter said: “Having useable training facilities is the foundation of us being able to offer sporting opportunities for hundreds of children and adults.

“We need your help to make it happen.”
