Cricket at Pelican Park

Pelican Cricket Club was founded back in 1925 when a cement manufacturing company called Earle’s Cement (which later became known as Blue Circle Cement) purchased 15 acres of land for use as its Company Recreation Field.

This later became known as Pelican Park (as explained earlier in the History section of this Business Plan).  Pelican Cricket Club was known as Earle’s Pelican CC up until 1978 however, when they left the Humberside Federation Cricket league and joined the works Saturday League they became Blue Circle CC.  When the Hull City Council bought the land from Blue Circle Cement in 1986 they were forced to change their name once again to Pelican Park Cricket Club and continue to play under this name at the current site.

Whilst only a small, friendly and local cricket club, they remain quite competitive alongside much bigger and popular cricket teams.  In 1998 the Pelican Cricket Club took part in a cup competition and won; in 2008 the club won the second division league in the East Yorkshire Alliance. This clearly shows each members determination and motivation to be a recognised cricket club in the area, they continue to raise the profile of the club by promoting cricket amongst children and young people. Team members age from 15 years up to 60 years and currently have one squad member who started playing for the Pelican Cricket Club in the mid 1980’s.  Three other club members who have been involved with the cricket club since 1976 are still involved in the organisation and continue to support the team.
Pelican Cricket Club also have a large number of volunteers who continue to offer their support by preparing teas and refreshments on match days, arrange fundraising activities to help towards the running costs and generally support the club.

Plans for the future – they would like to continue to promote cricket at all levels within the community and offer coaching sessions to all age groups with the intention of creating a junior cricket team.  They will continue to work in partnership with Pelican Park Community Trust in creating a sporting facility that is recognised as a Beacon Site for the people living in the East of the City of Hull.

Football at Pelican Park

Pelican Park Football has been operating from Pelican Park for many years and now has ten football teams registered as Pelican United Juniors FC.

These teams age from 8 -16 years lead by qualified coaches and supported by parents who have become active volunteers.
The Group currently have four committee members, although all football managers attend meetings and are encouraged to share their thoughts and opinions on all football matters. 

They currently have a large number of volunteers who support the sessions on a regular basis and offer training to help support them in group sessions. Each team has a registered coach, a safe guarding officer and a treasurer.  Several of the members are under gone training to become full qualified referees.

Members of the committee joined Friends of Pelican Park as they wanted to support the capital project.  They identified the need for a purposeful built multisport complex using green architecture, with the aim of developing a building design which predominantly utilizes recyclable and renewable materials to create a structure that operates on a minimal amount of energy.

We aim to use efficient solar power energy and to take up as little land as possible in order to preserve and encourage green space.

Pelican United FC stated in a recent consultation that everyone wanted multi-sport facilities so that a wide range sports could be offered to people of all ages. This is taking into account football academies for the young to dog walking circuits for the older generation. We want to be able to serve the needs of the local community and the needs of the users. We want to encourage sporting activities to high participant numbers. Our aim is to be inclusive to all.
