Kelvedon and Feering Cricketers Bowled Over by Fund Help

24 May Kelvedon and Feering Cricketers Bowled Over by Fund Help

Budding Ben Stokes and Lauren Bells in Kelvedon and Feering have been given a boost towards achieving their dream thanks to a new sports fund backed by former England cricketer Darren Gough.
The £75,000 Gigaclear Rural Sports Club Fund aims to support teams based in rural communities across the broadband company’s full fibre network, which spans 26 counties.
Kelvedon and Feering Cricket Club, who play their matches in Rye Mill Lane, have a range of men’s, women’s and youth cricket sides. Their 1st XI men’s team play in division two of the Two Counties Cricket Championship and the women’s team in south division one of the Essex Women’s T20 League.
Club chairman Nick Claus said: “Towards the end of last season, our nets had deteriorated to such an extent that we had to take a decision to close them altogether depriving our youth and senior players of a key practice facility.
“Support from Gigaclear’s Rural Sports Club fund was a vital part of us being able to refurbish our nets in time for the start of the 2024 season.”
Fund ambassador Darren Gough said: “Since launching the fund, it has gone from strength to strength, providing valuable support where it is needed most. It’s great to see so much kit and equipment being sent out to rural sports clubs such as Kelvedon and Feering Cricket Club and I wish them every success in the coming season. I believe the fund is helping make a difference to players now and to the rural sports teams of the future.”
More than 1,700 homes and businesses in Kelvedon and Feering are now able to access Gigaclear’s full fibre broadband offering ultrafast speeds up to 900Mbps. For more details, visit
