Lustleigh Cricket Club Juniors


Welcome 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.
