Junior coaching

CRICKET coaching for youngsters returns to Warkworth Cricket Club.

The club is looking forward to another busy but exciting season of junior coaching and competitive fixtures, organised by ECB (English and Wales Cricket Board) qualified coaches.

Registration night is tomorrow at 6pm and gives new and current members the chance to meet the volunteer coaches, see the fantastic facilities at the club and sign membership forms.

Coaching is open to boys and girls in school Years 3 to 11. The first coaching night is Friday, April 22, from 6pm to 7.30pm, and is for U9s, U11s and U13s. A welcoming club social for all children and parents will take place afterwards.

U15 coaching starts on Sunday, April 24, at 10.30am and runs until noon.

Junior coordinator, James Boyd, said: “With the recent warm weather, everyone with even a tiny bit of cricket spirit within them has been eager to get back on the field. Anyone can come along and give cricket a go, just turn up and our coaches will be more than happy to help. With support from Gray’s of Warkworth and sponsorship from Juniper Forestry, we’re delighted to be able to offer fantastic coaching once again. Due to the great success of our girls’ coaching last year we are delighted to be running girls’ coaching again this year.”
