This is all on top of a thriving junior section who will field three squads between the age groups of U9 and U12.

Youngsters will also get the chance  of All-Stars Cricket, run at weekends in the summer for children who want to give the sport a try.

They aren't resting on their laurels though and new members of any standard or age are more than welcome to turn up at "a very sociable club where enjoyment comes first".
