It seems a long while since we played any competitive cricket and I'm sure all of the under 13's are itching to get going again. Most of the group managed to get some training in during last year's shortened season, but hopefully we can all look forwards to a full summer of cricket this year feeling as normal as possible.
I have now been working with this group for 4 seasons and have watched them all develop significantly. We have a good mixture of both boys and girls who are competing for places in the team. The girls more than hold their own and have previously captained the team due to their level headedness.
I am really looking forward to this and to seeing how the group compete against our local rivals. We have a promising crop of youngsters who are talented with both bat and ball, some of which can realistically be looking at the posibility of playing some adult cricket sooner rather than later.
Hopefully the weather gods will be kind to us this year and we will be able to get in as many games as possible! It would be great to see as many of the team at training every Monday so we can work on developing our skills individually and as a group.
