I have been asked by the lovely Joyce Stockton at Garforth Parish Church Cricket Club to do a great big shout out for some new and local Junior Cricket players for 2017
At Present, the club no longer has 3 junior teams. This season they only had under 18s. They just can't get any juniors who want to play regular cricket. I know Football and Rugby are high up on the list of activities, but We are renowned in Yorkshire for our cricket?
As part of the local council funding, Garforth Parish CCC was one of the venues for the wonderful summer cricket camps and the 3rd year running! Although there are plenty of boys and girls who attended, The Cricket Club could get no interest for anyone to join the club next year.
The season for the juniors is now over, and the seniors only have 4 matches left.
Ideally The Club would like to reinstate their juniors next year, if they can get enough players.
What you need to know:
The season for the juniors next year starts early May. They need players aged under 13 up to under 18.
The person to contact is Dennis Stockton, Chairman. Telephone 0113 2862156.
This seems to be a great club, it's local and is really keen for the sport to carry on, where else are we going to get our next Yorkshire cricket players from?
They also have a facebook GROUP page
Giving a huge shout out to local businesses in Garforth and surrounding areas.
