The Vale Cricket Club Senior Leadership team has agreed an ambitious vision for the future of the club to ensure it's long term success. Our vision is:
"To transform Vale Cricket Club into a centre of sporting excellence with cricket at the heart of the club. To be recognised as a first class sporting and leisure destination in the Vale of Glamorgan attracting and retaining sporting talent from the local community."
Year 3 objectives - update September 2018
In 2018 we welcomed a new corporate sponsor - Fine Wines Direct UK who have pledged their support for 2 years alongside our existing corporate sponsor Bridgend Ford. Without this support the club would not have to progress and grow. The club would like to say thanks to Hugh James Solicitors for their support over the last 2 years.
The club has invested in new cricket equipment including an electronic scoreboard and refurbished the club house and changing room facilities.
Our senior membership has grown allowing the club to field 3 senior XI's on several weekends and field a mid-week T20 side on a Wednesday evening.
Our junior section now boasts over 100 members (boys and girls) aged 5 to 15 and our coaching team has grown to 14 qualified coaches.
Year 2 objectives - update September 2017
During the year we had the formal opening of the twin lane net facility, laid a new artificial wicket on the square and purchased new patio furniture . On the field, we welcomed 10 new senior members and participated in the ECB All Stars Cricket initiative welcoming 18 new 5 to 8 year old members.
Year 1 objectives - update September 2016
The leadership team is pleased to report that we have delivered on all of our Year 1 2020 objectives. The club house has been refurbished and the ground transformation is complete including new covers and the installation of a new twin-laned artificial net. Our partnership with Bridgend Golf Complex together with the ongoing support of our groundsman Tim Willams has resulted in numerous positive comments about our square and outfield.
Vale Cricket Club has a small team looking at future developments at the club which include an aspiration to improve our cricket facilities and evaluate the possibility of building an indoor cricket facility.
