Neil Higginson and Ann-Marie Presswell present to club volunteers


Over the last two weeks the Devon Cricket Board have held four club seminars across the County with 46 clubs in attendance.

Topics of discussion included the upcoming ECB County Grants Fund, All Stars and Dynamos Cricket programmes and Womens and Girls Cricket. Clubs also reflected on their 2019 season and shared their success stories with other like-minded volunteers. Volunteer support was also on the agenda and Sport England Workshops have been booked for March (see below).

The presentation summary can be viewed here. 

The DCB would like to thank Whimple CC, Bovey Tracey CC, Braunton CC and Plymouth CC for hosting the seminars.
