Westfield Cricket Club:  JUNIOR CRICKET

Westfield C.C. are embarking on two initiatives to get young people playing cricket at the same time making sure that cricket thrives and survives in the village. Cricket has been played in Westfield since 1790.

With the newly formed Junior section starting on Monday 10th April the Club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 7 and 17 to receive coaching and competition in cricket. This is the culmination of a successful year of co-operation between Westfield School, Sussex Cricket Foundation and Westfield CC. All coaching is by qualified coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people. We have also joined EACA Under 11 Softball League to give the young people the experience of competition.

ECB have recently launched a new initiative for 5 to 8 year olds called All Stars and Westfield CC have joined this initiative to further enhance our Junior section. Again this is in co-operation with Westfield School and Sussex Cricket Foundation who are running the scheme on behalf of ECB.

If you have children who would be interested in joining the Junior section initiative then please contact any of the Westfield CC committee members listed below and they will let you have a form to register them for the Junior section.

If you have children who would be interested in joining the All Stars initiative then you can register them on line at www.allstarscricket.co.uk or, as above, contact any of the Westfield CC committee members listed below.

We welcome parents to all training and competitions and value your support. We are keen to try and involve parents in the club so if you would like to be involved with our Club generally please introduce yourself to a Coach or *Committee Member.

Coaching sessions for Juniors will take place on Monday evenings between the times of 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm, by our very experienced coach Trevor Ramsden, at The Cricket Ground, Downoak Farm, Westfield TN35 4SL, starting on Monday 10th April 2017.

Coaching sessions for All Stars will take place on Sunday mornings between the times of 10.00 am and 11.00 am by Adam (Spud) Page at The Cricket Ground, Downoak Farm, Westfield TN35 4SL, starting on Sunday 21st May

If you would like to talk to someone at the club about this information or your child’s involvement with the club please contact the *Coach or a *Committee Member.

We are sorry to learn that Westfield News will cease trading after 4th March.  The newspaper delivery side of the business will be taken over by Pipers News from 5th March, and Richard, Dan and most of the team will be joining Pipers.  Westfield customers will have their newspapers delivered via Pipers, but everyone will miss the shop when it closes.  Richard and Dan have always been a very helpful part of our community, and we wish them well.
