As always at this time of year, the outdoor cricket season is creeping up on us...
It's been very pleasing to see excellent attendance at the Junior nets on Thursday nights - reminder those finish next week - 23rd March, and at the Adult Team nets at Mill Hill School also on Thursdays (7.30-8.30pm).
For those who aren't aware, since October last year we have for the first time formed an "Elite Junior Training Squad" made up of our most promising 14-17 year olds whom we want to push on into Adult cricket. They have been receiving weekly coaching from Paul Weekes, ex-Middlesex and England player and have really committed themselves as a group to the exercise. I'm sure it will reap dividends in the summer.
In terms of nets from here till the season:
1. Junior practice will after this week move OUTSIDE to Rowley Lane Sports Ground (London Maccabi Lions) on Sundays. Starting on 9 April through to the end of the Junior season - 10-11am U11s, 11-12pm U13/U15.
2. Adult nets carry on at Mill Hill School on Thursday 7.30-8.30pm till the end of April (no net 23 March due to exams at the school).
