Youth

We have a small and friendly youth section which has been growing nicely since 2013. Our team of Level 2 Coaches is led by the experienced Peter (Tommy) Tucker and Richard Fagence, plus newly qualified Jack Eveleigh. Former Essex player Dave Lee adds a wealth of experience to the coaching team.

We run sides for Under 9’s, Under 11’s, Under 13’s and Under 15’s and both boys and girls are welcome. There is a regular schedule of training nights and matches for the different sides, detailed below:

2020 schedule (from early April):

Monday 6.00pm to 7.15pm  – U13 & U15 Training (Year 7, 8, 9, 10)

Tuesday 6.00pm to 7.15pm – U11 matches
Wednesday 6.00pm to 7.15pm  – U 9 & U11 (Year 4, 5, 6)
Thursday 6.00pm to 7.15pm  – U13 matches and additional training

Sunday 10.00 to 11.00 am – All Stars Cricket (ages 5-8)

We are also running the ECB’s All Stars Cricket programme for 5 to 8 year olds. All Stars is aimed at sparking an interest in cricket at an early age – it involves fun games and activities that help develop key cricketing skills (throwing, catching, hitting a moving ball etc). All Starts will take place on Sunday mornings 10-11am, throughout the summer. Registration is completed in a couple of minutes online. Just visit the ‘ECB All Stars’ website and enter ‘Charlton Down CC’ in the search bar.
