Our playing facilities are genuinely amongst the best in the county and came in for particular praise last season with many opposing teams commending the ground and, in particular, the wicket.
The amount of time that goes in to preparing the ground so that it is fit to play cannot be underestimated. Under the watchful gaze of our Groundsman, Paul Crouch, Jonathan Kirkham in particular (but with the help of Frank, Tom and others) spends hours watering, cutting, rolling and marking out the wicket for each game.
Youth Cricket goes from Strength to Strength under the direction of Les Soden and Sian Parker, assisted by some enthusiastic Mums and Dads. The Club were involved with the ECB’s All Stars Cricket program.
For the 2018 season, the Club have invested in the training of three more Coaches in the ECB’s Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Children’s Cricket courses.
The Club currently have teams in the U9’s, U11’s, U13’s and U15’s leagues and the Club will be doing all it can to encourage the youngsters to progress through this in to Adult Cricket.
Our Ladies Section under the leadership of Sian and Clare enjoyed their first taste of competitive League cricket in 2017. They joined forces with Flitwick Ladies and acquitted themselves very well.
With the help of Bedfordshire Cricket, the Club hosted two Ladies Softball Prosecco Cricket events during the summer, events that were particularly well attended demonstrating the interest from within the village in ladies cricket. The Prosecco and BBQ undoubtedly added to the enjoyment and we will look forward to repeating the exercise this coming summer.
