Last training day for Biddenham Youth Cricket 2017

The last training day for Biddenham Youth Cricket took place on the evening of Monday 17th July 2017 with various age category’s represented. There were many of this year’s junior membership of 90 along with their families present.  This number was up from 55 last year. The cricket field was full of various training activities taking place with busy coaches directing  Its not often you see such a busy playing field in Deep Spinney!

The weather was fantastic, hot and sunny, perfect cricket weather. It has been the same throughout most of the 2017 season.

At the finish all children were given a traditional pizza to celebrate the end  of season. Chris Spurgeon gave a presentation about the success of Biddenham youth cricket. He stated that this year’s success can be measured by the number of children participating and given the opportunity to play fixtures. All volunteers and supporting staff were thanked as cricket would not be possible without them. The Village of Biddenham can be justifiably proud of their cricket teams and club.

A number of fixtures still remain to be completed with the next one in Pavenham on 23 July 2017.

Some pictures of the celebration can be seen below:-

Spotlight on Biddenham Junior cricket Club at Harrold

On a rather cool but sunny Sunday 25th June 2017, Biddenham junior (under 9) cricket club played an away cricket match in the beautiful village of Harrold. Despite the tremendous efforts by the team and going against their normal good form the match was unfortunately lost to Harrold juniors.  Many parents were present and all  enjoyed the lively and competitive match.  The team are looking forward to their next match at home to Elstow on 2nd July 2017.
