Please ensure that you thank all the parents who have agreed to look after a team and help out – it takes a lot of courage to put your hand up to look after a cricket team when you have never even played the game!

North West Youth Cricket

This week the Youth cricket get underway and NWYC 1st XI visit St Bedes College, did you know Jerry Cross went to St. Bedes with Peter Burke, it would be interesting to ask Jerry who he might be backing in that fixture. The only home fixture for the NWYC boys is the 9a side who face the CBHS in what is difficult first up wicket on BHS #3 where the toss would be critical.

These boys have all be training hard all week, and are looking smart in their training kit so good luck lads.

Welcome to Robert Renforth

Robert Renforth, from Mancester but supports Newcastle.

Our Premier wicket keeper and Treasurer Angus Harmen spent a couple of seasons in the UK and stayed with Robert’s family, and now Robert has made the big adventure to NZ. Robert is an ECB2 qualified coach but comes from club which has 3-4 sides that play on a Saturday and Sunday in the Lancashire league.

Robbie is going to be getting up to speed on junior coaching kiwi style and we are going to see if we can get him some other casual work that doesn’t interfere with that.

This might be first cricket coach to arrive at the ground in a Lime scooter.
