2017 Junior Cricket Proposal
To enhance the opportunities and the quality of junior cricket a proposal has been submitted to clubs to modify certain areas of the junior cricket structure.
Recently adopted in Australia and currently in discussion after some successful trials in England these proposals look at pitch, boundary and team sizes to give a more inclusive and positive experience in matches.
After a successful AGM where clubs adopted radical changes to previous rules and registration this has left the door open to a significant amount of activity for our promising juniors in 2016 from 7-17 years old.
