“It also shows that their youth sections are of a high priority and are run in a child friendly and equitable way by suitably qualified coaches and volunteers.
“You can be confident of getting a quality cricket experience at a Clubmark club, and parents do look for this when selecting a club for their child to play at.”
He added: “Not all clubs who start down this road actually reach the end as a great deal of work is involved, so it is important to recognise the development and improvement that these clubs have shown.
“The NCB would encourage any club looking to develop its operation and in particular youth section to undertake Clubmark, regardless of their size.”
