We had a another busy season of youth cricket,
although quite a few games were cancelled due to the weather, but the
committee would like to thanks all the coaches and helpers for the time and
effort they put into coaching the young players.
This was our 2nd year
of running an All Stars centre for 4 to 8 year olds which was very successful
and enabled us to enter an U9 Team in a number of tournaments, in which they
did very well for a fairly inexperienced group.
New coaches Nathan Dawson and Adrian Ward saw the U11ís finished a very
creditable joint 6thout
of 16, with a lot of the players experiencing the first taste of hard ball
cricket. The U13ís finished 4th in
a strong division of 12 teams, with coaches James Day and Matthew Grant seeing
some real improvement in their squad from last year. Coach Andrew Monteith,
assisted by our overseas player Shea Gribben oversaw a shortened and tough
season for the U15ís who completed only 5 games and had 3 cancelled due to
it was disappointing that after reaching the finals in the two previous
seasons our planned involvement in the ECB U19 tournament didnít go as
planned, due to player unavailability. However, most of these players did play
in our adult teams on Saturdays, thus continuing the process of promoting our
young players into our senior sides.
The season was wrapped up with a presentation night
where the following awards were presented:
