Junior Member 2021 Season Update (1st March 2021)

Hi all Junior Members,

Following the Govt’s announcement last Monday the ECB have announced that as from 29th March outdoor grassroots cricket can commence, which is obviously terrific news. As we now look forward to kick starting the 2021 season the key points for your attention are as follows :

  • There will be no indoor/winter training sessions (indoor sports aren’t expected to start until after the outdoor season starts).  If you wish to receive a refund please drop me an e-mail & we will arrange (see note below regarding Easter Training).

  • Weather & grounds permitting, we will look to start normal club outdoor training after Easter w/c 12th April. We hope that the Covid restrictions will allow all age groups to train on a Friday night, but we will see nearer the time.

  • We play in the North Hampshire League & they are planning to start the league matches from the second week of May – allowing clubs to have a few week of training first knowing that no-one has been able to do winter training.

  • We are planning to hold an Easter “holiday camp” of training sessions using our hard surface outdoor nets. These will be run by our Club Coach Lewis Sharp with some of our Junior club coaches getting involved & will run during the day across the 2 weeks of Easter Holidays. If you are interested please let me know & we will then build the sessions around the numbers of those interested. Depending upon numbers we would like to run a 90 minute session for each age group U9 – U15 on each of the 4 days prior to & after the Easter weekend. There will be a charge for this to cover our costs (expected to be £10-£15 per session depending on numbers) as it is in addition to the normal training, but for those that have paid their winter training then this will be off set.

  • We are also planning to run a weekly On Line training session during March again using Lewis out Club Coach. If you are interested in this please contact Lewis directly on lewis.sharp16@hotmail.co or 07883444079. The cost of these will be £5 per session & you should pay Lewis directly.

  • We are expecting that our outdoor nets will prove to be very popular from 29th March & therefore we will be prioritising access to our paid up members & we will again be operating an on-line booking system.

For those that haven’t renewed your Membership please do so urgently. This is crucial for us to start planning for the season ahead & to ensure that we can accommodate you.

Please also start thinking about ordering your kit (available via the website) – mid April is only 6-7 weeks away !
