Scarborough Cricket Club was originally formed in 1849 and is a prestigious, historic cricket venue currently hosting First Class county cricket, league cricket, local cup finals and inter-schools cricket matches. It has inextricable ties to the local community and a legacy of inspiring sporting achievement within both the town and wider region.
The project will enhance and rejuvenate the grounds, pitch and its facilities in order to meet the clubs aspirations to continue to host first class county cricket at this prestigious ground. At the same time bringing the venue up to date with English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) standards and requirements along with increasing the visitor experience at the ground.
The project will come to fruition through three phases.
Phase one will see investment into refurbishing the North Stand and its facilities to significantly improve standards. Activities will involve developing the existing toilet facilities to bring them in line with modern standards and constructing new disabled and family toilets as well as widespread waterproofing of the stand and upgrades to critical grounds equipment.
Phase two of the project will see digital infrastructure at the ground improved, along with visitor security with upgraded and expanded CCTV systems.
Phase three will see the redevelopment of currently unused space under the West Stand to improve and enhance the visitor experience. The project will create new toilet facilities including a changing places facility, and a multi-faith room. The old wooden seating will be removed and replaced with new, more robust plastic seating.
Match funding for the project is been provided by The Friends of Scarborough Cricket Club.
