Groundsmen

Cheshire Association of Groundsmen

Cheshire Cricket Board works in partnership with the Cheshire Association of Groundsmen to advise, support and encourage our affiliated clubs to make the most of their playing facilities.

In Cheshire, we are extremely fortunate to have three ECB County Pitch Advisors (CPAs) available to support the club network. The CPAs have a wealth of experience in getting the best out of pitches and a commitment to helping groundsmen at all levels of the game. A list of services available to clubs is as follows:

Pitch Advisory Service - Feb 2021 Cost
Site Visit - On-site inspection by a CPA and a simple, written report covering areas of concern £100
Performance Quality Standard (PQS) Report – Short Version with simple recommendations £150
Performance Quality Standard (PQS) Report - Comprehensive technical assessment of square or outfield using ECB Performance Quality Standards £250
Follow-up visit - negotiated by CPA if necessary £50-£100
Costs above not inclusive of mileage (45p per mile). Any additional costs to be advised by CPA as appropriate

To arrange a visit from one of our County Pitch Advisors, please email your request and contact details to gareth.moorhouse@cheshirecricketboard.co.uk

To contact our CPAs directly, or for all other enquires, including information about forthcoming training courses,  visit Cheshire Association Groundsman website

New initiative for 2021

In the absence of any face-to-face training during the National Lockdown, CAG are encouraging volunteer groundsmen to upskill by taking the GMA (online) Level 1 Cricket Grounds Maintenance course (cost £25). Upon successful completion of the course, please email a copy of your certificate to gareth.moorhouse@cheshirecricketboard.co.uk and your course fee will be refunded.
