The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has revealed that the England and Wales Cricket Trust invested more than £52m in capital grassroots projects during the last financial year.

The trust, in conjunction with Sport England, directly invested more than £11.6m, with more than £40m of partnership funding helping to benefit nearly 700 projects across the country.

Meanwhile, the trust was also responsible for investing revenue funding worth nearly £6m into grassroots cricket through the work of 39 county cricket boards.

The ECB said the funding had helped deliver progress in four key development areas, such as women and girls; disabilities projects; and initiatives to grow adult participation.

ECB chief executive David Collier said: "Assisting communities to maintain and develop their people and cricket facilities is key to sustaining and increasing participation across England and Wales."
