Junior Indoor Cricket League 2014 – Only a few places left!!!
With over 20 teams already entered, there are only a few places left in the indoor competition for Juniors (under 9s - under 15s).
In a tournament format, each team will play 2-3 games every few weeks (for dates: see flyer below), meaning you can still run training sessions and play in a competitive environment pre-season!
Sam Holt, LCB's Community Cricket Development Co-Ordinator for Rochdale, said: "There is already an Adult League in place with 10 teams travelling to compete from areas of Rochdale, Oldham, Bury, Burnley, Pendle and Hyndburn, so it made sense to progress to provide a junior indoor alternative on a larger scale.
"Any good coach will tell you that match practice and the scenarios that accompany such environments can prove far more beneficial to younger players than continual winter net sessions week in, week out. There are two large indoor 5G pitches, similar to the size of a 35 yard fielding circle, with ECB endorsed Flicx plastic tracks and unlike a lot of places has superb lighting, similar standard to what we have at the Indoor Cricket Centre at Emirates Old Trafford."
Both adult and junior competitions take place at the The Soccer Factory, based just off the A627 & M62 in Castleton, Rochdale, OL11 3DT.
