Cricket Club Juniors
to the Junior section of the Lustleigh Cricket Club website.
We have a thriving Junior section made up of children from 7 years
and over. In 2010 we teamed up with Moretonhampstead Cricket Club
to establish a joint Juniors section and regularly have 20+
children playing cricket.
Training is provided throughout the season by our fully qualified
English Cricket Board (ECB) volunteer coaches, without whom it
would be impossible to provide the Juniors with the expert
training they receive. Our
Juniors train at Lustleigh Cricket Club ground on Tuesday evenings
from April onwards.
Between January and March we provide a programme of indoor winter
coaching sessions to help prepare the Juniors for the forthcoming
season. In 2012, we
also ran our first Cricket Summer School – which was a great
success despite the rather wet weather!
The season starts in April.
We organise our coaching into two age groups - under 9’s and
under 13’s. League matches are played until the end of July.
However, not everyone wants to play in competitive league matches.
So don’t let the mention of league matches put
you off. We have and
indeed welcome children, who just want to play in “friendly”
matches with their friends who enjoy coming along on a Tuesday
evening to training.
In 2012, we entered
the Under 11’s B division in the South Devon Youth
Cricket League for
the first time, and we had a very successful season,
achieving runners up position.
The Juniors sub-committee would like to thank all parents for
their continued involvement in the running of the Junior section
of the club. There
are many ways in which parents can support the junior section,
whether it is helping with teas and refreshments or providing
transport to matches. Some
of our parents have also undertaken ECB courses in coaching to
support the development of the juniors section of the club.
