LLANDUDNO Cricket Club is seeking votes to benefit from a national grant scheme.

The Lions are aiming to secure funding from the Aviva Community Fund, which will be used to provide equipment for various age groups within their youth set-up ahead of the 2019 season.

A club spokesman, said: “The club has over the last few years worked very closely with schools in the area to provide free coaching to youngsters.

“The idea being that the youngsters take an interest in the sport and are attracted to play at our club.

All our coaches are volunteers and work and coach unpaid. However we are badly in need of kit. The club need to provide this kit and at different sizes for different age groups.

“Things like bats, balls, helmets and protective equipment to ensure the children taking part are safe and remain injury free.

“The equipment is often too expensive for many of our youngsters and this must not prevent children from taking part.

“The club are planning an ambitious programme for the 2019 season with the World Cup looming in this country in 2019 and will require the kit to further the programme.”

The 2016 North Wales Cricket League Premier Division champions run youth teams at U15, 13, 11 and nine, with both boys’ and girls’ participating on a weekly basis.
