2021 was a very successful season for Edwinstowe Cricket Club, seeing the return of junior hardball cricket at under-11 and -13 age groups in the Bassetlaw Junior Cricket League and a senior team in the Newark Midweek League. Investment was made on the field in the form of new practice cage, synthetic match pitch and full-length pitch covers. Off field, there were upgrades to the clubhouse heating and décor.
The Club does not intend to rest on its laurels and has already put in place some plans for the new season. Off field, a new outfield mower, more spectator seating and a redesign of the bar area. For the junior players, coaches trained and very importantly a bowling machine which will significantly improve their net coaching.
This junior arm of the Club continues to grow. It has already been playing indoor cricket at under-11 and -13 age groups in the NCCC-run initiatives at Worksop College. Once the weather improves and the season starts it will again be running the ECB accredited All Stars and Dynamo schemes together with hard ball cricket at under-11 and -13 age group.
- All Stars (for five to eight year olds) will be on Sundays at 10.30am to 12.00pm, starting 15th May.
- Dynamos (for eight to 10 year olds will be on Fridays at 5.30pm to 6.30pm, starting 13th May.
- Under-11 and -13 hardball will be on Fridays at 6.30pm to 7.30pm, starting 15th April, plus a full fixture list.
The senior teams are also expanding their programme, continuing to play in the Newark Midweek League but also having a range of Sunday fixtures, both home and away. New players at junior and senior age groups will always receive a warm welcome.
If cricket is not for you, the clubhouse is also a centre for Edwinstowe Running Club, Girls Play Sport and many other activities. There will be a full range of social events throughout the season with the clubhouse and facilities being open and the bar stocked. Go along, make friends and join in!
