Indoor nets continue at Ricky School , 6.55pm to 7.55pm, the last session being the 16th April. We have extended them over the Easter break and we then start outside on the 23rd April, at the club, from 6.00pm to 7.30pm
As you all know by now, we are encouraging the boys to take part in Saturday and Sunday mixed-age group Cricket at these age groups. With a few boys dropping off as they find other interesting things to do instead, we have only been able to maintain a Youth team at the U17 age group, and then involve Years 9 and 10 in those games.
Saturday and Sunday Club Cricket is a great way to be involved in the game, and last year we had 16 boys in years 8, 9 and 10 take part. We would like the same again in 2015. Also some of the Dad’s played in the games with their sons. Again, we encourage this 100%.
The annual membership fee for the boys is just £50.00 which is very good value compared to over £200 at other local clubs. This includes all practices, use of the nets at any time, and any Junior games they play in. Saturday and Sunday games have a £10 fee per match as we provide a Cricket Tea as well as balls and facilities.
Now the Year 11 and 12 boys do have some Youth matches this year under the guise of the Ricky Badgers 20:20 team. The fixtures will start after exams
So that’s it for now. A very warm welcome to all of you and a busy Cricket season is ahead of us.
