The Future Structure of Cricket in the East of Scotland
Albeit that participation in cricket overall has increased, participation in traditional Saturday cricket has been falling in Scotland, particularly at a senior level. In the East of Scotland a number of teams have withdrawn from the league structure and clubs have folded, with very few new teams or clubs coming in to take their place.
With many things competing for time in private lives, it may be that cricket is a lesser priority or that the traditional form/structure of the game needs to evolve and adapt to the changing needs/wants of those who play it.
ESCA with input from Cricket Scotland have created a short survey looking to engage and gain opinion from current and former players, enthusiasts and potential newcomers to the sport. We want to hear what those actually playing the game want and think.
The survey should take around 5 to 10 minutes and we’d encourage people to share this as far and wide as possible. The aim is to conclude the survey by the end of the 2017 season (survey closes on Friday 25th August 2017) and review the outcomes and suggestions, with a view to implementing any appropriate actions for the 2018 season.
Any questions, please direct these at the ESCA committee through the ESCA website (http://www.eastleague.org.uk/).
