2019 Season:

The Men's season started on Saturday 20th April (yes, Easter Saturday!) - competing again in Division 3 of the Nidderdale League.  Of our 3 matches so far we have yet to win - two losses (though one was close so we've collected several bonus points) while the other was washed out. The club is always looking for more players and supporters, so if you are interested then please contact our Secretary, Sue Hargreaves 07870782714    or sharg1956@yahoo.co.uk.

If you have visited the Hall and Pavilion you will have seen the new Balcony which will ensure greater protection while watching cricket and other sports of the field as well as providing a more social environment.  Completion is due shortly - go have a look.

A new Junior section has been formed with nearly 60 youngsters from some local clubs and from the village, lured by our facilities.  This enables us to run Junior teams and events for those aged about 7 to 15, something which has been missing in the village for the last 8 or so years.

The section covers U9s, U11s, U13s and U15s playing weekly in the Nidderdale Junior League (on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings).  They have already been playing indoor since Christmas and are now starting outdoors with nets and matches.

Outdoor training will start on Thursday evenings from Easter, with, we hope Andy Hawkswell ECB level 3 as coach.  He encourages and develops both individually and as a team. Boys and girls.  Observing parents might even pick up a tip or two!  A friendly atmosphere, with a family feel, parents welcome to get involved.

This year also sees the start of a
Development league - with teams comprising children from years 8 upwards together with those more 'senior'.  The matches will be on a Sunday, reduced overs and with a strict message to ensure that the juniors become fully involved in every match.  Our side has been 'christened' Monkton Mavericks and in our first match we overcame Harrogate Hurricans!
