Christmas Draw 2020

The David Shepherd Cricket Trust

Christmas Draw 2020

2020 has been a very difficult year.  

The Trustees of the DSCT propose a Christmas 2020 Draw to try and bring a smile to some and to add a little Santa magic.

The aim is to provide some assistance and encouragement to cricket clubs with a Youth Section and/or a Women’s Section.

The Draw is very simple – DCB Ltd affiliated cricket clubs with a Youth Section or a Women’s Section (or both) may enter the draw (see below for how to enter).  A club can enter the draw on behalf of its Youth Section or for its Women’s Section or for both: one entry for a Youth Section, one entry for a Women’s Section.

The closing date for entries is 24thDecember 2020.

The Draw will be made shortly thereafter, using a Christmas Stocking from which to extract entries.


  • First 20 “entries” drawn will receive £250 for their Youth or Women’s Section

In addition:

  • First 6 “entries” drawn will also receive a DSCT Polo shirt signed by either Heather Knight or Chris Read.  These polo shirts might be used as auction items.
