Our Junior Section

landscape ground header edit w.jpg

As well as being able to provide competitve cricket to many youngsters, the junior section of Minster is absolutely vital to the development our club. Many of our senior players have progressed through the ranks from our junior teams, and have also gone on to take ECB Coaching Courses, provided also by the club.


We currently run junior sides for boys and girls aged 6-16 in the Swale Cricket Association League. Our team of volunteer coaches is headed by our Junior Coordinator, Callum Hughes. We are always on the lookout for new players, of any age and ability to join our junior ranks so please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have.
