The Michael May Young Cricketers Foundation

The Foundation aims to help cricketers under the age of 19 living in Hampshire or the Isle of Wight who are in need of financial support in order to develop their talent or to pursue their interest in the game of cricket.

Listed below are just some of the contributions we can make to you:

  • Buy new kit (a bat, pads, gloves - you name it!)
  • Pay your expenses (if you go on tour, for example)
  • Help your club or school's youth cricket setup (perhaps by buying equipment they might not otherwise be able to afford)

We welcome applications from your school, club or association.

Follow the link above to find out how to contact us.

Each application is taken on its merits and considered carefully by the trustees and the committee.

Every applicant will receive a reply (whether or not their application is successful).

David Ivon Gower OBE (born 1st April 1957) is a former English cricketer who became the captain of the England cricket team during the 1980s. Described as one of the most stylish left-handed batsmen of the his era, Gower played 117 Test matches and 114 One Day Internationals (ODI) scoring 8,231 and 3,170 runs, respectively. He was one of the most capped and high scoring players for England during his period.

We are very fortunate here at the Foundation that David continues to support us and maintain our cricketing legacy and hopefully find the next England star of the future.
