YOUTH CRICKET (FROM 6+)
Ashburton Cricket Club are delighted to announce a change in structure for our junior section for the 2020 season.
Vernon Coon takes over as Head Coach and will oversee a transition that sees the majority of our junior’s now train on a Friday evening (instead of Monday). The move takes into consideration feedback from parents, whilst also aiming to provide a more relaxing atmosphere for both players and parents.
Paul Harding will also be running the new Dynamos Cricket initiative, for ages 8 to 11 whilst we also enter three teams in the South Devon League - Under 10s, Under 12s and Under 15.
Our Friday evening sessions will cater for ages 5 to 13, continually led by qualified coaches. During these 6pm à 7pm sessions, the bar will be open where parents are welcome to have a drink.
Throughout the summer, the club will be looking to provide BBQ’s during some nights whilst also exploring opportunities to offer cricket to our members during the summer holidays.
The first date for your diary is Friday 17th April where registration of membership will take place. The colts fee remains unaltered at just £30 for the entire season, covering matches and training, which represents fantastic value for money. More diary dates are below and on the club website.
Our Under15’s will now train on a Thursday evening as the club continue to integrate this group of players into our senior weekend sides, and will be led by Chris Pascoe. For the first time ever, the club will also participate in the National ECB Twenty20 Cup.
The club are still looking out for volunteers who can help provide ANY sort of help on a Friday night – whether this be helping behind the bar for an hour, run the BBQ or assist in coaching – no qualifications required, just a willing attitude!
The club would like to also take this opportunity to thank outgoing Colts Coaches Jerry Crouch & George Breyley for their efforts over the previous years.
The club is extremely excited about the new structure and announcements above, and f you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
We look forward to welcoming you to the ground,
Vern & Lloyd
