Junior's News

Signing on night almost perfect!

Cricket Chairman Ian Gatenby led from the front at the Juniors signing on night on Friday evening and with assistance from the Juniors manager Russ Noble and several more committee members.

Around 40 youngsters signed up for the new term.

Richard Noble has come through the ranks and with a great mentor in his Dad Russ

The bar area was full of children and their parents and Cleck’s First and Second team Captain’s Mally Nicholson and Elliott Hallas attended as did former Skipper John Wood and whilst the commitment from the kids and their families was excellent there remains a shortage of young players for the U9s.

Any youngster who has not signed on already and wishes to do so there’s still plenty of time and especially for children who’d like to play in the U9s team and to put pen to paper contact Gats or Russ or any Cricket committee member.

Like many young players at Cleck' Ethan Lee is improving every season he plays

In addition, on the night the bar manager Bethan’s sister Ella sang for the audience in fine fashion and the evening overall was a brilliant occasion.

Full house for successful Presentation and Race Night

Cricket Chairman Ian Gatenby has every right to be pleased with the outcome of yet another successful presentation and race night, which witnessed the function room full with approaching 150 youngsters and their families, players and members enjoying a relaxed but entertaining evening.

Although Gats makes it all look so easy he puts in an awful lot of work, not just through organising the evening but making sure the race night is a big success by ‘badgering’ would be sponsors - and his dog with a bone tactics works! The evening is a financial success, which is so important but equally the delight at seeing the kids especially enjoying themselves is priceless.
