The development of junior cricket has been very much at the forefront of everyone involved  at the club with parents, coaches, and the kids driving this forward. Teams from all age groups have been fielded from All Stars, U9's through to U18's. We regularly see 100+ boys and girls of all ages attending Friday night practise.

Cricket Facilities

Junior Coaching


As you can see from the gallery above, we have fantastic facilities which aid the development of our junior players. We are seeing increasing an increasing number of juniors representing our 4 senior teams year on year. The club have strong links to Lancashire CCC who have occasionally used our ground for their junior matches and practice sessions over the past few years.

Junior coaching in the Summer is on Friday nights from 6pm. The club has many ECB Level 2 qualified coaches who run the sessions and it's a great way for your child to learn new skills, develop their cricket ability, and to make new friends! We have 8 junior sides which are run by dedicated team managers, playing against local clubs in the GMCL. Our U15 and U17 teams also train with the senior squad on Tuesday nights.

All Stars cricket has been very successful for the club. In 2021 we had one of the highest number of children taking part in Lancashire. If you have a child aged 5 to 8, you can book onto the All Stars programme here.

This year we are taking part in the "Dynamos" course for the first time, which is designed as the next step after All Stars for children aged 8 to 11. In conjunction with this new programme, the sessions are for girls only with a view to forming an all girls team. Click here to book for the girls Dynamos!

All Stars course is now fully booked for 2022.
