Under 10 Cricket Festival
Sunday 3rd June 2018, Roseburn Park: 9.45am – 12.30pm
We are running an under 10 festival on the morning of Sunday 3rd June in Roseburn Park. As things stand, for the first time we may field two teams in what is an eight team tournament.
The games are eight a side and everyone bats and bowls. This is really for those who have started to play some games but we hope others will come down and see what is going on and we will try and set up something for the new All Stars if they can come along.
To make this all work we need some parental help please. In the past we have had a small stall providing teas and coffees and juice and home baking for those attending and if anyone thinks they can help with that it would be brilliant – please get in touch.
Family Fun Day
Sunday 19th August
Every year we have a family fun day in the park starting in the late morning with activities and games for the juniors and in the afternoon we usually have a senior inter club tournament. We have a barbecue and it is a day for all the family.
There will be more details nearer the time but for now you might like to block off Sunday 19th August as the day we have chosen.
Friday Night Training
Numbers on Friday night have been incredible and we are looking at the best way to cope with the numbers and potentially move youngsters between our groups. I think after 2-3 weeks we are getting an idea of abilities and we hope to be able to fit everyone into the right group so they get the maximum of activity and fun.
If you have any problems around what is happening please tell me or one of the other coaches.
Please remember if the session is cancelled because of the weather I will send a text out by 4.45pm on the Friday. Some weeks, if it rains, (until the end of June at least) we have a wet weather facility for under 11s at St George’s School for Girls at Garscube Terrace and the text would confirm if we are going there if it is raining
Whilst the official programme is due to end on Friday 28th June, we will continue to run sessions right through to the end of August. The intention if the youngsters are keen will be to continue to use parts of the All Stars programme and also introduce more games themed activities.
You may be interested to know last winter we run indoor sessions on every second Friday night at St George’s School for all under 11s
If we have the numbers we would be keen to do that again and as the summer progresses if you are interested in that please let us know.

The youngsters have lost their three games to date this season – they are generally playing older and more experienced sides and one of the advantages this season is that our Overseas Amateur Aashiq Rhode is coaching the youngsters on a Friday nights and is with them at the games to see what we need to work on. Thanks also to Tom Grey who has been helping and umpiring and Iain Martin who has been scoring. Games need to start by 6.15pm normally.
