Who we are
The gloucestershire cricket foundation is a charitable company set up to provide all people with the opportunities to play and be involved in cricket
Led by a Board of Trustees and a team of 16 staff members, the ambition of the Foundation is to give everyone the opportunity to take part in, and be part of, cricket. This includes delivering cricket in schools, cricket in community hubs, supporting and developing local recreational clubs, through providing cricketing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
The opportunities provided and the support given covers all people, clubs and schools from within the Forest Of Dean, Tewkesbury, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Cotswold, South Gloucestershire and Bristol Local Authority Areas, meaning there is a significant area to cover and support.
The Executive Team is made up of 16 staff members who fulfil managerial, officer and coaching roles.
The team is led by Steve Silk, CEO of the Charity, from the GCF Office at The Bristol County Ground. The team is a dynamic group of people who give such energy and enthusiasm to the development of the game.
The Board is made up of 11 Trustees who bring specialist skill sets and an enthusiasm to develop cricket in Gloucestershire.
These have seen the recreational game in Gloucestershire recognised as one of the leading counties in the country and being branded a ‘High Achieving Board’.
Behind any organisation there is a significant amount of work that takes place to ensure the smooth day to day running’s of it.
The Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation is no different; led by a Board of Trustees and a set of empowered Committees and Action Groups, these structures are in place to ensure that the needs of key partners and the needs of the immediate local game are met. Structures are also developed to provide space for significant development work to take place so enabling more and more people to be part of our great game.
