Youth Cricket – Girls

Girls cricket training in 2017 will be held every Wednesday starting on 26th April from 6pm to 7.15pm.  Before this, on on the 19th of April, we will have an informal net session for those who are not away during the Easter holidays, starting at 6pm (we would appreciate some help from parents on this evening).  There will be no training on 31st May due to the Half Term holiday.

Year 3

We hope to have a new group of Year 3 girls to add to our current Year 4s, 5s and year 6. The current membership is expected to increase from 30 to 40.

Welcome to new coaches
The same old faces are of course going to be there; Nick Terrett is our qualified coach so look out for some new ideas and exercises! We also have some new volunteers – Andrew Maddern, Manesh, Gareth Dodds and Andy Burrows


First Aiders
Thank you to Lisa, Kelly and Viv for volunteering to go on the First Aiders’ course. We would welcome additional names.

New sign in registration
All girls are now required to sign in and sign out for each training session in line with our new child welfare procedures.
There is also a registration form; please click here to complete it.

Look out – we are going to look the part this year!
There will be new coloured kit for the girls and ladies cricket teams.  The girls shirts will have numbers on the back.  

We have intentionally opted for larger sizes in the hope that the shirts will last a few years and can then be can passed down to our younger members.

Subscriptions and Gift Aid
Girls Cricket annual subscriptions are £35 which includes the new shirt. We also ask for gift aid forms to be signed by parents.  Anyone joining us for the first time is of course welcome and the first few weeks are free taster sessions to see if you enjoy the cricket.  

With new kit on the way it is important that subs are paid early. You can pay by internet banking using the following Sort Code 30-00-01 Account number 02926191        

Last year, Girls Cricket played a big role in Party in the Park by running stalls, giving donations of cakes and selling raffle tickets.  This year’s event will be on Saturday 16th September – please keep the date free.  We do ask all girls, their parents and their families to help, and to support Party in the Park.

Calendar – Festivals
The festivals are friendly tournaments which are held on Sunday Mornings starting at 10am and finishing at around mid day.  These are really enjoyable events and we generally have a picnic lunch afterwards!
