Junior Cricket 3 of 5

3. Juniors Pathway to Adult Cricket

• Sunbury CC has a great reputation for including Juniors into Adult cricket at the right time that is safe and enjoyable for both the child and the club.

• Varying availability week on week will dictate how many Juniors get games every week and selection will differ from Saturdays and Sundays.

• The Saturday cricket is generally more competitive as the club enters 5 Saturday league sides for the first time from 2021 and selection for these is based entirely on merit.

• There are two 1st XI cup competitions on Sundays, but the main Sunday cricket is the Chieftains (Surrey Trust League Tier 1) and the Thunder (Surrey Trust League Tier 3). These are development sides with a requirement to select a certain number of U21 & U18 players. There will also be friendlies arranged at home where availability dictates, and these are a great introduction to Adult cricket.

With this in mind it is key you let your age group coach know if you have a desire to play Adult cricket in the coming season and key periods you may/may not be available. This allows the club to gauge how many friendly fixtures feel viable.

If you are aware you have a period of key exams and will not be making yourself available for a month or going away on holidays, please let us know – this will need to be pre-season before the fixtures are arranged!
