Please could you pass on our thanks to all involved in creating the Big Cricket Celebration today, our son thoroughly enjoyed himself.

We felt the whole event was well organised and thought out. Our son was in group 12 and the ladies really impressed us with how they kept the children busy and engaged throughout the morning. 

It was wonderful to see our son so happy to be taking part and being made to feel comfortable with a group of children he had only just met, the ladies are a real credit to Gloucestershire Cricket.

We hope you all enjoyed a well-earned cuppa after the event, and we hope to see events like this offered in the future.

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.
