Fernhurst Cricket Club - Colt / Junior News

Under 7's - 50 or More
The under 7 year groups are very full. We have therefore reluctantly decided to close this age group to new applicants. Once this age group has realised all the paperwork etc. we fear it could reach 50. This is our max limit as we do not have enough coaches for more even with Mark Langridge coming forwards. It is fantastic news for the club that we have so many wanting to join the coaching success here at Fernhurst.

If you hear have any enquiries come forwards please let them know that in the new year we will be having a sign-up-day prior to season starting. This should then ensure we get enough coaches on board. Many thanks and sorry to disappoint those that did not manage to join
