Full details of all the benefits of affiliation can be found by clicking here.
Affiliation to the Somerset Cricket Board costs just £10 per club, plus £25 for each adult weekend league team on your main match day.
Those clubs who only play friendly or midweek cricket are able to access Club Support for just £10.
To take advantage of the Club Support Offer, clubs should complete and return the contact form below (part one) and pay for their affiliation (part two).
Part one – return a completed contacts form
So that SCB can communicate effectively with clubs they require all clubs to complete and return the 2016 club contact form (Word document) to email@example.com. Failure to complete this form is likely to result in missing out on opportunities available to your club.
Part two – pay the correct fee
To help make payment as easy as possible for your club, there are three ways to pay, pick the one that suits your club:
- Online via Clubpay by clicking here.
- Cheque made payable to Somerset Cricket Board and returned to Centre of Excellence, The County Ground, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 1JT
- Bank Transfer- Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details
All affiliation fees collected are used by the Somerset Cricket Board to improve their support for cricket clubs and recreational cricket in the county.
Please note, if your club is playing cricket this summer then they must affiliate to ensure that you are registered with the ECB (access to play-cricket.com) and qualify to play in most cricket leagues in the county, SCB KO Cups or ECB competitions.
