Junior Cricket Coaching


Fordhouses Cricket Club prides itself on our junior cricket coaching.  We operate all cricket coaching under ECB Club Mark accreditation.

We run teams from U9’s through to U17’s. In recent years many of our youth teams have achieved success at both local and regional level.  Click here to see this years award winners.

A number of our junior players have also gone on to represent their District and County at junior level. However, we also believe in giving kids of all abilities, genders and backgrounds an opportunity. As a result, you’ll be assured of a friendly welcome to our coaching sessions regardless of whether you are an accomplished player or trying cricket for the first time.
