Please visit our membership page to sign up for the season. From there, returning members can fill in the new streamlined online form, which should take only a minute to complete. New members will be able to download a membership application form. Remember, there are no membership fees for 2021, though if anyone would like to pay the voluntary £10 fee, it would be most welcome. The club's banking details can be found on the downloadable membership form.
We're planning to start youth training sessions again from Wednesday April 28th at 6pm on the Village Green.
Given the long gap since we were last together, we have decided not to enter a league this year but to focus on training - refreshing and learning skills with a view to entering a league team (depending on numbers and age groups) in 2022.
Training will primarily be aimed at players aged 8 to 12 (though we are happy to take under-8s too). We will be providing equipment - we have recently received Sport England funding which has enabled us to buy some new kit, which will minimise sharing. Kit will also be sanitised after sessions. Players attending training are of course welcome to bring their own kit, but this is not essential.
Sessions will be led by fully qualified and DBS-checked coaches and will take place within ECB covid guidelines. The first couple of sessions will be free of charge and we are then planning to charge £10 for the first child per family, and £5 for siblings. A one-off fee covers the entire summer and will be reviewed in the light of any new restrictions.
For those who are 13 and over, our batting net will be available for practice at the same time and players in that age group are eligible for adult midweek league and Saturday league cricket - indeed, a number of the under-13s team from 2019 are likely to play in those teams.
All this does of course depend on Government guidelines and the roadmap out of restrictions proceeding as expected. It is also weather dependent as we will not be able to play in wet conditions, so please keep an eye on this website and our Facebook group.
