Ready for summer

Junior Cricket at Strathmore Cricket Club emerges from indoors on Monday (April 15) for a busy season of practice and competition.

The club’s younger members have been preparing for the new season by participating in coaching sessions at Whitehills Primary School since January and are raring to go for the new season

Once again this year the club will be fielding junior teams at under-11, under-12, under-13 and under-15 levels. There will also be opportunities for under 18s to play in a midweek squad.

All of this is on top of regular weekly coaching programmes which help children and young people hone their skills. These weekly sessions run from 6.15 to 8 p.m. each Monday evening. All sessions are run by qualified coaches, with considerable experience in supporting the development of young cricketers.

Last year, Strathmore Cricket Club had about 40 junior members. This year the club hopes to build on this base and bring in many more young players.

New members will be very welcome at the first coaching session on Monday, whether they have any playing experience or not.
