I’m sure most of you will already be aware of the devastating news that recently struck the club following the tragic death of our star player and junior coach, Tom Allin. The outpouring of love and affection for Tom from across the cricket community and beyond has been testament to his character. Tom, in particular, was adored by the children, who he coached every Monday at the club and across primary schools in the local area as part of the “Chance To Shine” initiative. His passing will leave an enormous hole at the club.
With a heavy heart, we are starting to look forward to the new season, and I have news of this year’s 8-week programme of junior indoor practices:
For Who: All age groups (U9-U15) Boys and Girls*
When: Every Thursday 4th February – Thursday 24th March inclusive.
Duration: 7pm – 8:30pm
Where: Bideford College Sportshall, Abbotsham Rd, Bideford, Devon EX39 3AR
Cost: £2 per person per session
Bring: Full playing kit if you have it (older players can participate in hard ball net practice, youngsters can play softball-based exercises and games)
No need to wear whites, sports kit is fine. Drink. Money
*New players are welcome but must complete a player profile form first which I can provide
I am expecting the outdoor practices to start at the on Monday 18th April, 6pm, but will confirm the details of this in due course.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
With best wishes
NDCC Junior Section Chairman
