Who's Running It?

Lincolnshire County Cricket Ltd acts as the local arm of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for cricket activities all over the county, working within all areas of cricket including grass roots and schools, clubs and leagues, and county youth squads.

LCC aim to to encourage more people to have a lifelong involvement in all aspects of cricket, to encourage the provision of a stable environment for cricket to take place, and to contribute through cricket to the health and wellbeing of people in our county.

Woodhall Spa Cricket Club will host the first ever Lincolnshire Cricket Festival on 31st July and 1st August.

The two-day festival will showcase the work that Lincolnshire County Cricket Limited (LCC) does in supporting and promoting cricket in the county.

There will be a guest appearance from former England captain Mike Gatting, now England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Managing Director (Cricket Partnerships) and he will be appearing at a Q & A evening.

Lincolnshire age-group teams, a sporting 'celebs' XI and a Woodhall Spa CC will be playing during the event which will also see free coaching sessions, cricket displays, sponsor displays, tented village, other special guests and barbecues - something for everybody.

LCC Chairman Rob Bradley is looking forward to the event and hopes that as many people come along as possible.

"Our hosts for the first Lincolnshire Cricket Festival is Woodhall Spa Cricket Club and we thank them for their terrific contribution so far," he said.

"We hope that the event gives them a valuable boost too along with the wider Woodhall Spa community.

"We will of course welcome other clubs to bid to host the festival in years to come."
