Colts cricket at Maldon
The principle aim of the Maldon CC Colts programme is to provide a safe environment that allows all participants to develop their cricket skills appropriate to their respective age group whilst at the same time making new friends, becoming part of a team, and most importantly having fun. Our structure creates a pathway for players to develop and progress from junior sides into adult cricket and a lifelong affiliation with Maldon Cricket Club.
U9 training commences Saturday 20th April and runs each week 9.30am - 10.30am
U11 training commences Saturday 20th April and runs each week 9.30am – 10.30am.
U13 training commences Friday 26th April and runs each week 6.30pm-7.45pm until Friday 21st June. Training will then revert to Saturday mornings from 29th June each week 9.15am-10.30am.
U15 training commences Wednesday 24th April and runs each week 6.00pm - 7.30pm.
Please arrive 10 minutes ahead of the stated start times. It is very frustrating for coaches when sessions have to be adjusted to accommodate for latecomers.
As a leading member of the Central Essex District Cricket Board, the club will have teams represented across the following age groups.
• U9 – Two sides playing in the East & West Divisions playing Terrier Cricket
• U11 – Two sides playing in Division 1 & Division 2 East playing Terrier Cricket
• U13 – Two sides playing in Division 1 & Division 2 East playing Full Cricket
• U15 - Two sides playing in Division 1 & Division 2 East playing Full Cricket
We will also compete in the CEDCB Cup competitions in each age group and an U12 team will be selected to play in the Brian Taylor Trophy against clubs from across the county.
Age group managers will send out availability texts for all matches. Please try to respond quickly. Home matches are played at either Drapers Farm or Promenade Park.
All Colts must wear a Maldon CC cricket shirt when representing the club in competitive matches along with full whites. It has been agreed by the Colts Management Team that the appropriate dress code is an important aspect of representing our club and enhances a strong team ethic amongst the players. Kit is supplied by Warsop who can be contacted on 01245 400434 or in store at East Hanningfield.
In line with club welfare and ECB requirements, all Colts participating in hard ball training and matches must wear a cricket box and helmet when batting and wicketkeeping.
We are fortunate to have parent volunteers who already help the age group managers but the club is reliant on as many as possible being involved, especially setting up on match days, scoring, and umpiring. It is a very rewarding experience helping so many young players develop their love of the game so please help where you can. All skills can be learned quickly!
