Following on from the progress made with ACCC’s U11 squad last year with the coaching and management support of Andrew Mallinson, Mike Eccles and Gerald Hurles, we’re delighted that the U13s are to be supported in a similar way this year by Mark Easton and Tony McQuaid. Many thanks to Alison Latham and Mary Corden for keeping the matches going last year! So hopefully there’ll be great support for the boys and girls all the way through from 7 to 13.
We are changing the coaching evening to MONDAYS. Same timings: 6pm for U11s, and from 7pm for the U13s. We hope this change of evening doesn’t cause problems for you with other commitments, but it’s a much better evening for us coaches to make the commitment to be there as much as possible (we’re all volunteers and have to fit this around work etc!).
Outdoor Coaching and nets will start this year on Monday 30th April. We may also organise a session or two before that and will keep you informed if that happens.
After England’s rise to the top of the world test rankings, the wheels seem to have fallen off in the Middle East these past couple of weeks, so we have some work to do to find the next generation of talented youngsters. Or perhaps you’re just looking forward to the smell of freshly mown grass, warm spring sunshine and familiar green stains on cricket whites! Not far away now…
