Description

Several years ago Tottington St. John's C.C. had a junior section which comprised of an U13 boys team. The young team kept together and worked their way through the age groups until U17 level when unfortunately your junior team folded. Many of these lads now in their 20's still play for our Senior teams. During their time as juniors they learned new skills, not only to play cricket, but discipline, respect and teamwork.

We know the only way to survive as a club is to attract a new generation for Juniors to the club and provide them with new skills too. This would compliment our existing thriving Women's & Girls section. Our aim is to start a Junior team at U9 level each year so in 8 years time we will have a Junior team at every age level. In order to do this we will need to find coaches from within our existing membership and put them through the relevant courses so they are qualified at the correct level which again would provide these people with new skills.
