New Cricket Pavilion opened by former England and Lancashire cricketer Neil Fairbrother.
This fantastic new facility provides modern changing rooms, a social room and disabled access for all the sports teams based at the Irlam ground. The seven acre site, off Liverpool Road in Irlam, is home to Irlam Cricket Club, three senior Irlam Steel football teams, several bowling teams as well as hosting darts, dominoes and snooker.
B and E Boys have just completed the construction of the new pavilion which was made possible thanks to funding from the Hamilton Davies Trust and theEnglandand Wales Cricket Board (ECB). The old pavilion was in need of improvement and when Irlam Cricket Club achieved ECB Clubmark status they approached the ECB for support. A local charity, The Hamilton Davies Trust, also agreed to support the project due to the benefit it will give to such a wide variety of sports in the Irlam and Cadishead area. The total cost will be in the region of £390,000 with £250,000 being provided by The Hamilton Davies Trust, £121,000 from the ECB and the remainder coming from the Irlam Steel Recreation and Social Club and local fundraising.
B & E Boys have undertaken a number of sport related construction projects and are currently completing Goshen Gymnastics Centre for Bury Metro Council.
