This year had seen The Cricket Asylum Foundation expand it’s scholarship scheme, this development has been solely thanks to the involvement of mortgage and finance experts Manchester Money. From offering just a few scholarships per year, so far this year an impressive 15 scholarships have been awarded.
Scholarships are given to young cricketers who may be keen and talented and wanting to advance in the game, or be disadvantaged by way of physical and learning disabilities or lack of financial backing. The succesful applicants receive coaching, cricket equipment and support to access wider opportunities in the game.

Upon checking in on the progress of this year’s Manchester Money Scholars here is just some of the feedback we received
“Cricket is a fundamental part of Adam’s life. Not only does it provide access to fantastic coaching, but it is very apparent just how much this is helping our son continue to be motivated, but above all happy. Adam is thoroughly enjoying all aspects of the scheme, and during such unprecedented times has helped keep a level of familiarity that all our children desperately need.” Verity Bibi
“Having received so much over the years from everyone involved with the Cricket Asylum Foundation I am so grateful to Manchester Money for their sponsorship. The coaching I;ve recieved has helped me go from a club player to now being part of Lancashire’s Emerging Player Program and I’m loving every minute of my Cricket” Aadam Ali
