Edinburgh South Womens Cricket
With an increasing interest in cricket and an expanding team, Edinburgh South Cricket Club’s Womens Cricket needed to purchase additional equipment for its members to use throughout the season.
As current sponsors of the women’s and girls’ team strips, we were happy to continue that support by funding the purchase of new protective equipment, including helmets and thigh pads, from the Cameron Toll Community Fund.
Sian Kiely from Edinburgh South Womens Cricket said: “Our women’s section is open to all ages and abilities, and we provide team kit for use by all players in our womens’ team ensuring that we are inclusive to all in our community. Playing cricket with Edinburgh South does not require individuals to have their own kit so being able to provide kits and protective equipment makes it very appealing to anyone with an interest in this brilliant sport.”
Claire Jefcoate, centre manager at Cameron Toll said: “Making sport as inclusive as possible in our community is something we’re very keen to be part of. With the growing interest and success of Edinburgh South Womens Cricket at Inch Park we’re delighted, through our Community Fund, to be able to help them increase that inclusivity and participation even further.”
Edinburgh South Cricket Club are founder members of the Inch Park Community Sports Club (IPCSC). IPCSC is one of Scotland’s most exciting sporting projects, creating excellent sports and community facilities including the amazing clubhouse and cricket square. In recent years they have rapidly expanded its youth activities, coaching in seven primary schools and one secondary school in the local area, as well as running its own youth section.
