RCC welcomes all forms of sponsorship.
RCC is an amateur sports club and is wholly dependent on volunteers. We are incredibly fortunate to have so many people who dedicate time and passion to help the club thrive. These range from the Welfare Officer, Age Group Managers, Kit Supremos, Grounds and Facilities miracle workers, mid-week scorers or umpires, or Sunday morning cat herders (and all those other roles that I have missed) - these are the people who make Richmond Cricket Club.
Your sponsorship could help these wonderful people to continue to support our 75 adults and 450 junior members and their parents. If your company is interested please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as encouraging participation we are highly successful on the field. In 2018 our 1st XI were double champions of Middlesex, and we have a thriving junior section who won the Middlesex Victor Ludorum in 2018 - awarded to the best junior club in the county.
RCC Juniors combines for “cricket for all" with elite player development and it is a juggling act to manage this balance effectively. Turn up on a Sunday morning or a Monday evening and you will see that there is always a happy buzz about both Old Deer Park (ODP) and the Newman Cricket Ground (NCG) at Christ’s School. The league and cup results from last year were again strong and we have a growing group of very talented cricketers making their mark at representative level. The girls age groups are thriving and this is set to continue. There is no doubt that we are delivering on cricket for all.
The highlight of 2019 was the U13 girls run to the Lady Taverner’s National Cup finals day. This is a remarkable achievement by a talented group of girls who have been afforded the opportunity by a dedicated and growing group of volunteers who have grown the girls section of the club. The development of the Girls section means that we are reintroducing women’s cricket to RCC which is a really important step for the club. 2019 also saw a lot of juniors making a difference in senior men’s cricket - as well as representation in the 1st and 2nd XI, we saw no fewer than 6 different junior bowlers take 5 wicket hauls to help steer the 4th XI to safety. This shows that we are starting to see the flow of talented junior players through to the adult teams, right the way through to the 1st XI.
We are well represented (boys and girls) on the Middlesex and Surrey County pathways and that is a testament to the talent of the players and of the high quality cadre of coaches who are now part of RCC. This team, under the oversight of Director of Cricket (DoC) Adam London, are highly qualified and experienced and mean that RCC is becoming a destination for ambitious young cricketers.
Now for the money bit……. we are not a profit making organisation but the books need to balance. We must cover our costs and this is particularly challenging this year. If you want to be associated with this wonderful club please contact either Chris Goldie (Club Chairman) or Rich Zotov (Chairman of Junior Cricket).
