Broxhill Road Club looking to increase number of youngsters involved in colts sessions set to begin next month

Havering-atte-Bower Cricket Club are looking to recruit more young players for their successful colts section.

The Broxhill Road club has a strong history of developing young cricketers and many of the senior sides are filled with players who started off as colts.

Havering are going to start running sessions on Saturday mornings from May 20 with groups for colts from the age of five up to 16.

Places on the sessions are available to anybody who wants to attend and ability is not important.

“We’re trying to give the club a bit of a boost and bring in new members,” said Havering’s Pete Edge.

“Particularly younger players and families whose dads would be keen to play in the same team as their kids, as well as creating colts age-group teams.”

Havering have been in touch with more than 40 local schools to raise awareness of the colts sessions and anyone wanting further information can contact Pete Edge by emailing pedgey8@hotmail or via their Facebook page https://en-gb.facebook.com/haveringcricket/.
