Colt and Junior Teams:
We are pleased to announce that due to popular demand our junior training sessions with professional coaches will continue in 2018. This is part of the redevelopment of the cricket club and we have had a fantastic response for our professional coaching sessions with the Junior side but there is still room for more boys and girls. Training sessions to play Kwick Cricket are on Thursday evenings, at the cricket ground on Bull Green, starting at 6.30pm until 8.30pm for up to twelve weeks. We have purchased all the necessary equipment so all the children have to bring is suitable clothing for training and a drink. Please click on the following BCC Junior Cricket Letter for further information.
