Club Treasurer, Ashley Godber said, “It’s like nectar but instead of earning points, each purchase generates a donation. So instead of going directly to a retailer’s website, go to easyfundraising first and choose the retailer you want to shop with – then everything you spend with that retailer earns a free donation for Cherry Burton Cricket Club. It’s completely free to use and your shopping won’t cost you a penny more.”
On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping – and those donations soon mount up.

On this day in 1892, Chris Wells joined Cherry Burton Cricket Club as a promising youngster!
Well, actually this is Johnny Briggs, who became only the second England bowler to take a Test hat-trick!
Former Cherry Burton CC member Simon Rogers has sadly died of pneumonia aged 43.
Whilst not the most technically gifted of bowlers, he was a very useful bowler – some of his wickets may have been taken with full tosses but he was quite skilled at making something happen – great when as a captain you wanted to break a batting partnership!
He attained legendary status with his request for a fielder to move to ‘Off Spin Gully’! To this day we’re still not sure just where it was supposed to be!
Cherry Burton CC pre-season training gets in to full swing with indoor nets at Sirius Academy North, Hall Road, HU6 9BP from 7:30 – 9pm on Monday 11 January until Monday 21 March. As well as the usual batting and bowling practice we will be introducing the BOLA cricket bowling machine as well as additional fielding drills. Should you wish to join our pre-season training boot camp please contact Ashley Godber on 07974 738549 for further details.
