I so do hope we won’t be Singing in the Rain… writes junior chairman Leigh Dickinson.
With luck, junior training will commence this Friday (21st April).
The coaching team have been busy planning what we hope will be a fantastic run of Friday training sessions as we enter into the new season with very high hopes and great expectations.
I will continue to emphasise what a great junior set up we have at Greenmount, one that we will always to strive to improve on – so please keep providing feedback.
Winter training has been a huge success. The EPP for the more advanced juniors has been great and the foundation work with the younger players has also seen early pre-season success in the Bury Indoor Cricket Tournaments.
The Under 9s won three out of five games while the U11s won all five of their games and the tournament – an incredible achievement!
This summer we will be providing coaching for: All Stars 5-8 yr olds 6pm – 6.45pm (starting 5th May) U9s and U11s 6pm – 6.45pm; U13s & U15s 6.45pm – 7.30pm (these times will stretch a little as we get longer and warmer nights).
It is essential that the U9s and U11s be both signed in and out by parents/carers and we ask that as a group they leave the field promptly as the older children start their training. Cricket balls are hard and it can be dangerous.
There will be a few Fridays when training will not be possible due to T20 fixtures, which we hope will be great evenings that give our juniors inspiration to play senior cricket.
