Have you been inspired by England’s awesome winter tour of Australia, where they retained the Ashes and thrashed Australia?
Did you make a New Year Resolution to take more exercise?
Have you ever played cricket before and would like to get back to it again or would you like to start playing cricket?
Are you interested in working with young people or would you like to be more involved with the local community?
If you answer yes to any of the above questions then we would like to hear cricket teamfrom you. The club is currently gearing up for an exciting 2011 season where there will 2 adult Saturday sides playing in the Cambridgeshire leagues, 1 Sunday development side (mixing adult and junior players) playing in the Norfolk league and we are aiming to run 3 junior sides (under 11, 13 and 15), all playing in the Cambridgeshire leagues. However to ensure all of this can be supported we need players of all ages and abilities. From a playing perspective we are particularly keen to find players for our first team, so if you fancy a challenge we are the club for you!
We also desperately need a manager to help organise our under 11 side – a huge knowledge of cricket is not necessary as the job is much more about organising the team and getting them all to the games, rather than a formal cricket coaching role. That said anyone who is keen to help with coaching, or is able to help with these junior sides in any way at all, would also very welcome to join us.
Littleport Town Cricket club has been going for over a 100 years and we aim to keep it going for 100 more. We are a friendly bunch and there are plenty of social opportunities along-side the serious (and not so serious) business of the cricket we play. We try to have a number of events each year (curry nights, race nights, a fun day and BBQ, quiz nights, etc.) and have good facilities, at Littleport Leisure Centre, enabling us to enjoy suitable refreshments after the game.
