Electricity Sports Awarded ECB Club Mark Status

Leicester Electricity Sports Cricket Club have been awarded ECB Club Mark Status; the first inner city club in Leicester to achieve the prestigious status.

As a result the club, based at Leicester’s historic Aylestone Road cricket ground, will become recognised as a Focus Club for both junior coaching and for links with local schools. The Club Mark Status will also allow Electricity Sports Cricket Club the ability to apply for grants, which can be used for improving facilities, purchasing new equipment or coaching costs.

Club Secretary Keith Webster is understandably delighted by Electricity Sports’ latest achievement.

“The achievement of Club Mark status is a real feather in our cap and demonstrates that our Club is well organised and can take on new challenges,” he said.

“It will reassure parents that we are a good choice for them to send their children to and ensure that they receive good coaching with opportunities to play either competitively or just for fun.”

The award of ECB Club Mark Status is the most recent development to take place at the club, with Electricity Sports’ first team finishing second in Division 4 of the Everards League, gaining promotion with a young side.

Also finishing as runners-up in the Junior Cup, the club has also established a third team which plays at Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth I College.
