We re-launched our junior section in 2017 and this has grown rapidly over the last 2 seasons. We continue to look for 6 to 12 year olds who might enjoy an introduction to cricket, irrespective of previous experience. As well an introduction to the game our sessions are fun and active, getting everybody moving, involved and having fun.
We are a family friendly club with players and volunteers living locally and are looking to expand our junior section and find our cricketers of tomorrow. We have some fantastic practice facilities as well as all the training and playing equipment required. We have a team of enthusiastic coaches, 5 of which have achieved the ECB Level 2 Coaching qualification, funded by the club.
We're not looking to profit from our junior section as many clubs do – we'll be running our practice nights free of charge and there's no match fees for those representing the club in competition. We don't believe in creating barriers to playing the game so we'll provide all of the equipment necessary to take part, we'll even provide a club shirt to play in where required. All we'll charge is a fee to cover the hire of indoor net facilities in the winter and a small club membership fee currently just £25 a year.
You can get further information from our head junior coach Phil Hiley via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07793022261. The 2019 season has now concluded with indoor winter coaching due to begin again around January/February 2020.
