Bredon Cricket Club celebrated the achievements of its young players with a fun day at Hill Close.
There was a Kwik Cricket match for the under 9s and a club match for under 11s, 12s and 13s.
Families turned out in numbers, despite the overcast weather.
The clubhouse bar was busy, and there were eager queues for hot dogs and burgers at the barbecue. Tea, coffee and cakes were also on sale.
It was the culmination of a terrific season for the club’s junior cricketers. All have made fabulous progress this year. The Under 9s won a festival at Dumbleton while the Over 12s reached the Cotswold League Shield final.
Well done to all the youngsters and their parents/carers.
With the end of the season approaching, Bredon Cricket Club is organising a fun day to thank all our young players (and their parents/carers) for their superb efforts this summer.
It will be held on Sunday, September 4, at Hill Close and the format will be as follows:
From 12.30pm:Kwik Cricket match for all under 9s (children who were in school years three and four). We will set up on the junior square and play a pairs match of 8/10/12 per side (the same format as our competition earlier in the season).
From 1pm: Barbecue with a free hot dog or burger for all junior club members.
From 2pm: Club match for all under 11s, under 12s and under 13s players. We are likely to play pairs of 10-a-side, but may need to play 12-a-side depending on the turnout.
The clubhouse bar will be open all afternoon during the fun day, and there will be a cash barbecue for all non-players.
All under 7s junior members are welcome to come along for a free hot dog and to play mini-cricket matches.
For parents/carers it will be an opportunity to relax, enjoy a drink in beautiful surroundings and swap summer holiday stories!
