International Community Cricket Trust is a Registered Charity (No. 1119716) of which On-Side Cricket Limited (OSCL) and the International Institute of Cricket Umpiring & Scoring Limited (IICUS) are wholly-owned subsidiaries. The purpose of this charity-led consortium is to create a dedicated, not-for-profit, ‘one-stop-shop’ facility able to source and provide a wide range of complementary practical support services, facilities, resources and benefits for community cricket clubs throughout the United Kingdom to supplement those provided by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), the 38 County Cricket Boards, the ECB Trust and Cricket Scotland.
The strengths of the International Community Cricket Trust Consortium stem from the facts that:
- It is administered and staffed throughout by teams of individuals who, themselves, have had many years’ wide-ranging playing involvement and practical ‘hands-on’ management experience at all levels in community cricket and, because of this, understand its importance and value both to the local communities as well as to the future of the game in the UK. As a result, each is absolutely dedicated to the cause of community cricket and to safeguarding its future by working directly with – and through – the clubs and participants who are its life-blood.
- It is an independently-funded organisation that does not receive – or seek – any grants, funding, donations, or any form of official financial support, from the England and Wales Cricket Board, Sport England, the ECB Trust, the MCC, the Department of Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), the Lord’s Taverners, or any other similar cricket-related organisations or charities, and is, therefore, genuinely independent.
Structure and Organisation
Currently, the Executive Board of International Community Cricket Trust comprises the following independent Trustees:
Keith Pont – Chairman
Darrell Hair – Deputy Chairman
Naval Heeramaneck, FCA, CTA

The Trustees have designated a geographic/demographic infrastructure for the future administration of On-Side Cricket and the International Institute of Cricket Umpiring & Scoring throughout the UK based on 14 Regions; each with its own, paid, resident Regional Director:
For appointment to each of these Regions, the Trust is currently in the process of interviewing prospective locally-resident Regional Directors together with, in the larger Regions, a Joint Regional Director, each of whom will have full responsibility and accountability for promoting and administering the complete ranges of support services provided by both On-Side Cricket Limited and the International Institute of Cricket Umpiring & Scoring and working with the consortium’s sponsors and Joint Venture Partners (JVPs) throughout their region.
