Southborough Cricket Club - Junior Cricket

Junior Notice Board
We believe that the future of our wonderful game is best enhanced by providing opportunities for children and young people to be supported in their cricketing development and also in their development more generally.

Team sport has many fantastic benefits and where better to partake in a team sport than Southborough CC.  A warm welcome is made to all of our juniors, their siblings and parents and the Common is a veritable hive of activity with streams of All Stars and Under 9s on Saturday mornings and U13 matches on Sunday mornings.

What we are trying to achieve is best summed up in the following diagram - for a club of our standing, it's not short term gain we seek, but rather development of our juniors to progress through to senior cricket and to become the next administrators of the local club game, be it here at Southborough or elsewhere.

Southborough Cricket Club provides opportunities for young people, both boys and girls, between the ages of  7 and 16 to receive coaching and competition.

We operate three teams
  • All Stars Cricket  - we have been running an ECB All Stars Centre since this scheme was first introduced in 2017.  Since then, we have seen a year on year increase in the number of All Stars and now attract over 60 each year and its great to see such a high number of children enjoying a safe, fun programme.  As well as a Lead Activator, we have three other Activators but always looking for more to help out. 
  • Under 9s Cricket  -  following on from our success in running the All Stars programme, we have recently started an Under 9 Section.  Especially pleasing is to see the number of girls that are wanting to continue playing cricket, the majority having started in All Stars.  This age group plays softball and we enter them in the Kent Cricket Mini Super-8s competition.  We're also looking at other Sunday morning friendly tournaments against local sides as a way of bringing together this age group in a relaxed family orientated environment with bbq and our infamous slush puppie machine.  We have a lead coach and one other qualified coach and are in the process of increasing our number of qualified coaches
  • Under 11s Cricket  - we are currently unable to offer opportunities for juniors in this age group though are making plans to re-introduce in 2021 or 2022 season.  When running, this age group is the first entry into hard ball cricket and competed in the Invicta Junior League, which plays against local sides and is based upon Pairs Cricket.
    Under 13s Cricket  - continues their development, introducing new elements into their cricketing knowledge and the format starts to look more like senior cricket, though based around 9-a-side teams.  Compete in the Invicta Junior League and in 2020, we have two teams competing.  For those in year 8 deemed suitably developed by their coaches, there might be opportunities to play Sunday cricket alongside and against adults.  We have a lead coach and one other qualified coach, as well as Team Managers.  We also have a number of 'older' juniors (U15s and above) providing assistance to these coaches and these sessions give opportunities for those undertaking the young leaders in cricket course, or Duke of Edinburgh Awards to volunteer and gain experience in coaching young people.
  • Under 15' Cricket  - we are currently unable to offer opportunities for juniors in this age group through will re-introduce this age group in 2021 and they will compete in the Invicta Junior League
