Youth section looking to a bright future

There’s BIG things happening with the youth section at the cricket club. The April management meeting was told by head of youth cricket Natalie Hunt that she begins a new season of afternoon cricket coaching at the local Duchy Primary School on Tuesday, April 19.

She is also set to talk with Broadclyst Primary School to see if they too would like some coaching sessions there – all this is being done with the support of Matt Cooke at the Devon Cricket Board (DCB).

As for internal youth coaching – all that kicks in at Kensham Park on Friday, April 22 when Natalie and youth coach Dave Bunker will be launching a new season of Friday Night Colts’ Coaching which, this year – the club’s 125th – is also being done in tandem with a special new Friday Night at the club with the bar and the kitchen open.

It is hoped that Friday Nights will then move on from simply being a coaching night with the colts’ parents – and family friends – sitting out the sessions either in – or outside – the Kensham Club with beer and food!
