A very warm welcome to Folkestone Cricket Club Colts section.
The Saxon Shore League now has new rules on the age of umpires.
U11 and U13 matches - minimum age is 16
U15 matches - minimum age is 18
At least ONE umpire has to be of minimum age or the match will be cancelled.
We encourage and hope that parents will get involved and help out in scoring, umpiring or any other duties that will help the team. Full training and support will be given - please ask your team manager/coach.
Folkestone Cricket Club strive to promote cricket in the local community and help to develop the skills of young cricketers between the ages of 6 and 15. Our Colts are very important to the present and future success of our club. They begin by playing Kwik Cricket with a soft ball and when ready can play matches in the Kent Cricket Board's Mini Super 8's competition (Under 9s). Emphasis is on fun, developing hand eye coordination and learning cricketing skills.
We also run sides in the Saxon Shore League at Under 11, Under 13, and Under 15 levels with a number of our promising Colts playing at Junior County level. In 2013 our U15's won the SSL title.
When they are considered ready, juniors can be selected to play in the senior teams. In 2013, we saw several of our colts playing in one of the five senior teams we run. They are regarded as valued and talented members of the teams and the product of the excellent coaching they have received at the club.
We provide regular Friday evening outdoor coaching sessions during the summer and Monday evening indoor sessions during the winter at our brand new 'state of the art' facilities at Three Hills.
All our sessions are run by qualified ECB coaches.
Outdoor Training starts on Friday 25th April 2014
From 18:00 to 19:30 for all age groups
New players are welcome - just turn up on the day and register.
Folkestone Cricket Club is Club Mark accredited and is a Focus Club.
