Montgomery CC Guard of Honour at Cardiff for England v Australia ODI. With Simon Jones.
Montgomery Youth Cricket
In 2002 Montgomery Cricket Club made a decision to promote a policy of youth development and has been operating a youth section for over 15 years; we now have over 50 registered young members of 15 years old and younger, with over 150 younger members having been through youth section coaching since we started in 2002. The club strongly believes that all youngsters should be given the chance to play cricket in a supportive and friendly environment and in providing this, the club will ensure that the future of the club and cricket in general, will be secured. The club operates four youth teams including Under 9 years old, Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15. We would encourage children of all ages to attend although, as a guideline, children under the age of 7 may struggle with the length and structure of the sessions.
The annual subscription for youth members is £10 per annum and this allows for each youth member to attend any or all of the Thursday evening coaching sessions taken by our qualified coaching team, for use of club kit and, if appropriate, to qualify to play for one of the youth teams. The subscriptions are kept deliberately low to encourage younger members to attend and therefore to promote cricket in the local community.
The parent/carer of each youth member is required to complete a Membership Form for the individual, with key personal details, at the first coaching session that they attend. The annual subscription may also be paid at this time.
Queries regarding membership arrangements may be addressed to Keith or Anne Griffiths (01686 630404).
