Crispin Shingler / Community Development Manager
Cricket has always been a part of Crispin’s life. Before becoming part of the Gloucestershire Cricket Family, he saw first-hand how engaging in cricket can have a positive impact on people’s lives.
In London, Crispin worked with several charities aiming to transform people’s lives for the better through either cricket or drama. He delivered a range of programmes to adults, young people, and community groups going into various establishments such as care homes, prisons, and alternative learning providers.
He originally joined the GCF as the Wicketz Development Officer for Bristol, using cricket as a development tool for young people from low-income households, and has a background in fundraising, with a focus on corporate partnerships.
As Community Development Manager, Crispin’s main responsibility is to grow the GCF community cricket programmes; Wicketz, ACE, disability cricket and walking cricket, while creating and sourcing funding for new fun, inclusive and impactful cricket for good programmes that enhance the lives of people, while bringing communities together throughout Gloucestershire.
Crispin continues to play cricket for his village and leads the club’s youth section.
