Cricket Scotland will introduce a new accreditation scheme for clubs, called TopClub, from March 1 to improve junior sections and make them more attractive to local authorities, parents and funding agencies.

The aim is to create a vibrant junior game which will ultimately support senior club cricket.

The governing body's local development officers are available to give advice on the TopClub scheme, child protection and equity policies.

"A strong and healthy network of clubs is essential if cricket is to grow and flourish in Scotland, and we are committed to that process," says Cricket Scotland's youth development manager Andy Tennant.
