We’re delighted announce the launch of the Manchester Money Scholarship Fund, this project will be dedicated to widening opportunities for young aspirational cricketers.
Cricket can be an expensive sport, making it difficult to progress and access equal opportunities without financial backing. A shining light of what this fund can do is Aadam Ali, who has been a TCAF scholarship recipient for 4 years now. The young leg spinner from Oldham has gone from playing local club Cricket through to being named Lancashire u14s Player of the Year in 2020 and this year being awarded a place on the prestigious Emerging Player Program. With the fantastic support of Manchester Money we will be able to help many more youngsters like Aadam reach their potential.
