GREAT NEWS – £50,000 grant towards new pavilion!! 

We are absolutely delighted to announce today, Tuesday 17th July 2012, the amazing award presented to us today by Sport England of a £50,000 grant towards the building of our new pavilion. Only 60 awards were made from over 1,000 applications nationwide so we are understandably thrilled.The Inspired Facilities fund is part of the £135 million Places People Play legacy programme that is bringing the magic of a home Olympic and Paralympic Games into communities across the country. Every sports facility that receives funding will carry the London 2012 Inspire mark – celebrating the link to the Games.

Robert Halfon MP said "I was delighted to hear that Matching have finally secured this Olympic investment, for their cricket club. It is a tribute to the work the local community has put in over the years. Hopefully many young people from Harlow and the nearby villages will be inspired by this to take up the sport." Sir Alan Haslehurst MP is also thrilled at our news saying "It is good news for Matching Green Cricket Club and a real boost to cricket in the area"


Club Chairman, David Brown, said: “This award will enable Matching Green Cricket Club to realise our ambition of rebuilding our pavilion. The club has already raised significant funds and the £50,000 from the Places People Play fund leaves us just £15,000 short. With one last push for donations and on our fundraising we will have the funds required to complete the build before the start of next season.”

@essexdutchy @EssexCricket Yes, a bit negative given that we blew them away in the morning and Ansari was 'absent'. Tymal has wintered well!
