Last Tuesday 8th Feb saw 30 excited and eager juniors kitted out and raring to go in the fantastic indoor net arena at Lancashire CCC, this year we have been successful in securing ALL five indoor nets for our juniors for 10 whole weeks until 12th April. For the first time ever we had 6 lucky U9s who have had the opportunity to experience the indoor facility which will give them a head start to improve their cricket skills as they re enter the SMJCL as contenders for the friendly league title and cup!
The Friday night training sessions that have been held throughout the winter months at The Manchester Health Academy, has seen many of our juniors develop their stamina, fitness and fielding skills which we believe will prove to stand them in good stead for their season at WCC in all age groups.
Everyone who attend both Lancs and MHA have been a credit to WCC and proves that Wythenshawe CC has a wealth of junior talent and have the potential to improve on league placings this season...here's hoping that some silverware will be making its way to Wythenshawe again this season.
Thanks to all who have been able to offer their time and support in making all this happen for our juniors...Tracy Bailey Jnr Secretary.

Happy New Year to ALL our junior members and families!! We trust you all had a good break and enjoyed the festivities of the season?
Also Massive Congratulations from all the junior section to our England Cricket Team on winning the Ashes in Australia for the FIRST time in 24 years!! A FANTASTIC series saw a great TEAM effort to beat the Australians on their own soil. Well done ENGLAND!!
I hope that many of you stayed up or got up early to watch highlights of the Ashes games to see how well the England boys played together as a TEAM, some outstanding individual performances from Alistair Cook (Essex) and Jimmy Anderson (Lancs)were backed up by a great ALL round performance, which showed just how much working together as a team improves your chances of winning and that strength in the field is JUST as important as batting and bowling!!

We are very much looking forward to our new season 2011 and hope that you will ALL be fired up to win games, work hard on your cricket skills and enjoy playing back at Wythenshawe Cricket Club this coming season, maybe watching your heroes in Australia will make you all want to win some Silverware for WCC this year....we know you CAN DO IT!! Don't forget to ask your friends at school to come along and join you for season 2011 at WCC, so they too can see what a FANTASTIC game Cricket IS!!

Finally, our indoor cricket & skills training has started again at Manchester Health Academy (Old Brookway High School) on Friday evenings 1st session (ages U9's & U11's) 6:15 to 7:15pm and 2nd Session (U13's to U15's) 7:15 to 8:15pm ONLY £2 for the session and parents can use the fantastic gym for ONLY £1.50 whilst you are training!! BARGAIN!!

Oh!! and really finally!!...ALL of you who are coming to Lancs (Old Trafford) Indoor Cricket Nets..a reminder that we will be starting on Tuesday 8th February...8pm until 9pm and will run for TEN weeks until Tuesday 12th April...so if you can come along to the Fridays session it will help to brush off the rust before you start netting in February!!
