Our Boys Section

We run a lively and energetic Boy’s section from U7s up to U15s. We have a strong coaching set up with all Lead Coaches ECB qualified. We encourage the learning of new skills and team working in an enjoyable, learning environment and aim to generate a terrific team spirit. We have produced many District and County level youth players over the years including two who went on to play professionally for Hampshire

Coaches

The Junior section is coached by a number of ECB qualified Coaches, we are currently agreeing which coaches will be assigned to each team for the coming season, so watch this space.

All teams will be able call on additional experienced coaching support from ECB level 3 Coach Colin Justice (see
Pen Picture),  
The club has been successful in Junior competitions in the past but this is not the main aim of the coaches.  An emphasis on enjoyment, team spirit and good attitude takes precedence, and there is a belief that good technical coaching will only produce excellent results when accompanied by a friendly sporting atmosphere.


Coaching begins indoors every January on Sunday afternoons and continues outdoors at Sean Devereux Park from early May.
