Training started – new players wanted

Coalpit Heath Cricket Club is starting training for its youth and adult teams and is looking for new players of all ages and abilities to join them for the coming season.

Coaching for boys and girls in school years 6 to 11 is provided on Thursdays at Yate academy between 6pm and 7pm. They will have lots of fun while learning how to bowl, bat and catch the ball while improving their fundamental movement skills and fitness. The cricket clubs team of ECB qualified and DBS checked coaches will be on hand to ensure a safe and fun environment for learning the game of cricket, as well as help more experienced players to improve their skills. In the spring there’s also a chance to play in organised matches against local teams in the Bristol Youth Cricket League.

Many children will develop a life long love of the game and go on to play for the club’s various adult teams, or maybe develop into future stars for Gloucestershire or even England.  The cricket clubs adult teams have had considerable success in recent years, with a group of young players who have come through the clubs youth set up. Both the 1st and 2nd teams enjoyed promotion last season, with the 1st team being champions and promoted to Division 1 of the Bristol and District league. A range of abilites is also catered for and anyone who would like to join-in is welcome to come along to adult training which is held on Sundays between 5pm and 6pm, also at Yate Academy.

Further details can be obtained from Richard Foley, Youth Manager on 07941 360161 or email, and Matthew Toms, Club Captain on 07970 137638 or email
