Double Celebration for Melton
Melton St Audrys CC and Melton Achilles YCC have two reasons to celebrate in the run-up to the new season. Firstly, the club has just received its Clubmark certificate from the England and Wales Cricket Board. Clubmark is the ECB’s accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. Clubs are required to meet minimum standards across 4 key areas: Duty of Care and Safeguarding Children; the Cricket Programme offered by the Club; Knowing your Club and its Community – One Game; and Club Management.
The second piece of good news is a generous funding award from Suffolk Coastal District Council, which will be invested in new equipment and coaching for the youths.
With brand new training facilities already opened last season, the youth section is enjoying unprecedented growth. The club welcomes new players of all abilities including absolute beginners, both girls and boys, aged 6-18.
