Colts Success in Wisden!
Our 2009 U11's put in a great performance against Newbury and were mentioned in the 2010 Wisden Cricketers' Almanack on page 1581:
READING POST - June 23
Newbury Under-11s had a total of 50 in their match against Mortimer West End – but none of their batsmen scored a run. Nine were bowled for ducks, and the tenth was run out. Their runs came from six no-balls and 19 wides, which all counted double under age group rules. West End won by ten wickets.
The club currently has seven ECB qualified coaches. All of our members who work with the colts are Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checked.
As well as being skilled in the delivery of quality cricket coaching, our coaches have signed up to a coaches Code of Conduct which outlines coach responsibilities, the type of relationship that they set up with players, and importantly, the rights of those players. Further information can be found in the Coaches Code of Conduct document.
During training and matches, coaches will always insist that appropriate protective equipment will be used - see Helmet Guidance. The club has all equipment available for colts to use as necessary.
Junior Membership for 2017 is £60 per Junior Member, with a reduction for further family Junior members. This includes a £10 payment to cover ALL training sessions and matches.
First-time members receive a free club shirt (normal price £20).
Our membership year runs from January to December.
Supporting the safeguarding of young persons at the club, we have put in place a number of policies. Parents are asked to confirm that they have read these policies and understand the role of the club and its officers in organising colts' cricket activities.
