Wiltshire Cricket is Now a Company

Regardless of whether you follow cricket or not, you will no doubt be interested in hearing about the developments within the Wiltshire Cricket Club in recent times. The start of October saw the club make a new beginning as a proper company. They are hoping that this unusual move will enable the club to be more professional in many ways.

The move has meant that the club has more freedom in choosing where and how it will use the funds provided to it by the England and Wales Cricket Board. Personally I think that while it is an unusual move, the idea is a good one. The proof will be in the pudding of course and we must just wait and see how the Wiltshire Cricket Club performs in the future. But the early signs are good, with positive messages coming from the Cricket Development Manager Pete Sykes.


The club has lots of good ideas for development in the future, and while we shall have to wait to see these ideas come to fruition, the freedom that being a proper company will grant the club looks good.

While cricket is not my favourite sport it is good to look into the workings of a club and to see how becoming a company could change those workings. Lots of businesses have to make the decision about whether it is worth forming a proper company or not, and this is just one example of how good the change can be.

You may not be running your own county cricket club, but whatever business you are in St Matthew is here to help. Contact us now for advice about your tax and business situation.
