JUNIOR AUTUMN INDOOR CRICKET

Kenilworth CC Junior Autumn term Indoor Cricket at Whitley Academy, Coventry, CV3 4BD

 

Indoor group junior cricket training is currently taking place at Whitley Academy in Coventry on Tuesday evenings.  This coaching is on Tuesday evening and this term runs to Tuesday 14th December 2021 (excluding 26th October).  The cost works out at approximately £7 per child to attend one hour each week.  Payment is required for the full course though (and not on a weekly basis). 

If your child wishes to play hardball cricket in these training sessions they will require their own kit. 

No kit is required to play softball cricket but if they can provide their own bat it would be helpful. 

To accommodate all our children’s availabilities sessions for different age groups are running simultaneously, as follows:  

 

Year 2 – Year 5 softball and year 5 to Year 9 hardball is 5 – 6 p.m.  

 

Year 4 to Year 6 hardball plus hardball U13 girls is 6 – 7 p.m.

 

Year 5 to Year 12 hardball is 7 – 8 p.m.

 

If you wish to participate, please contact Jane on 07787 343056.

 

Under 9’s are County Champions

WINNERS – Under 9’s win Countywide League

 

 

Kenilworth Under 9’s are 2021 County League Champions

 

Kenilworth Cricket Club Under 9’s have won the Warwickshire Hardball League Championship in a hard fought and enjoyable final against Bablake O.B. Cricket Club and it is a fitting end to an unbeaten season for the Kenilworth side.  

There were 10 sides in the League, split into 2 Groups, each consisting of 5 teams and 8 players a side, playing a round robin with the other sides and each Group winner progressing into the Final.

In the final, Kenilworth batted first and posted a challenging total of 285 thanks to hard hitting innings by Alex Marr (17), Freddie Kelley (14) and skipper Max Ashley (22), who were ably assisted by the rest of the team in only losing 2 wickets in their 16 overs.  

In their innings, Bablake found it hard to score initially with Jack Boon and Toby Miller taking 3 wickets between them in their opening spell and Freddie Kelley and Jack Marr only conceding 2 runs in their four over spell.  Some powerful hitting from the 3rd Bablake batting pair brought their score closer to Kenilworth’s but some excellent fielding from Ruben Parashar resulted in a run out and Ali Khan closed out the Bablake innings with some accurate bowling in the final overs.  Bablake finished on 245, meaning a 40-run victory for Kenilworth.  

Finally, the celebrations started for the team and their supporters when captain Max Ashley and the team were presented with the trophy.

Well done and congratulations to the young Kenilworth side for their achievement in winning the Countywide League.

Also, a BIG THANKS to all the Coaches in the Youth Section and to all their sides for the time and commitment that they give for the enjoyment and progress of the younger generations.
