Cricket Yorkshire’s insurance partner, Aston Lark, has revealed the winning cricket clubs in their annual prize draw. 2022 is the third year running that clubs could win one of three cash prizes.
The prize draw closed on 30 April 2022 and winners were drawn at random from those who requested a no-obligation insurance quote or were already insured with Aston Lark.
They had just under 500 entrants – which is a record – and for the second year, Aston Lark awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes to recreational clubs.
The lucky clubs, drawn by Keeley Knight in their Marketing Team, were:
1st Prize £ 1,000 – Frome Cricket Club, just outside Bath in Somerset
2nd Prize £ 300 – Maltby Cricket Club in North Yorkshire
3rd Prize £ 200 – Barwick in Elmet Cricket Club near Leeds in West Yorkshire
After the winners were confirmed, Colin Mico, Aston Lark’s Cricket Scheme Account Handler, said:
“Once again we are happy to support recreational clubs recover after the issues of the last two seasons. Well done to the winners and to Yorkshire! If you would like us to review your insurances to see if we can reduce your costs, please get in touch.”
For cricket clubs assessing their club insurance in future, Aston Lark – with their club cricket know-how – are well worth considering.

Top tips for cricket clubs
Here’s a guide to cricket club insurance – and how these Yorkshire clubs chose theirs. Common pitfalls include ‘under-insurance’ by under-valuing items in your club’s policy that actually cost much more to replace.
According to Aston Lark, almost 80% of buildings insured in the UK would not receive sufficient funds to reinstate, if there was an insurance loss.
