Tonight's Under 9 match drew down the curtain on what was a fantastic season for our junior cricketers. Throughout various leagues, cups, friendlies and tournaments, a record 38 junior fixtures were completed across 4 age groups. What was most pleasing is that we managed to field a full side in virtually every fixture, and on most occasions had more than the required number. With almost 40 colts, our junior numbers now stand at the highest they have ever been, and the participation in the 2016 season was comfortably the highest we've ever had.
From the coaches and everyone else at Minster Cricket Club, we would like to say a big thank you to all of the kids who took part this year, as well as to all of the parents for helping us out, and getting the youngsters along to the various training sessions and matches. We will now celebrate this success at our end of season Presentation Night.
We as a club will endeavour to put in the work, and do everything we can over the winter to build on our current healthy position by recruiting yet more numbers, and continue to work on funding projects to improve our facilities and will look forward to seeing you all next year for indoor training once again.
Thanks very much,
The MCC Coaching Team.
Minster Under 9's enjoyed good success on the field this year, with superb numbers throughout, we are very excited about some of the talent we have coming through.
Despite not always coming out on top in their matches, the attitude of our very young Under 11 side was superb throughout. We look set to field a strong line up in this age group next year.
The Under 13 side had many new players this season, and the side performed admirably throughout. With the majority still young enough to play next year, 2017 looks promising.
Finally our Under 15 team exceeded many people's expectations this season with some superb performances against some of the stronger sides in the league. Getting stronger every week, and with a few more numbers we will hope to build on this progress next year.
