GCC Juniors 2020 News –
Juniors outdoor training will commence on Saturday, 25th April, commencing at 09.30. Our training sessions will again be run by Gecko.
If the weather is good earlier in April then we’re also proposing to arrange some additional midweek outdoor nets.
Just to let you know that we’ve entered U11, U13 and a joint (with Tewkesbury CC) U15 teams in the Cheltenham & Gloucester Cricket Association leagues for the forthcoming season. Gareth Cry’s-Williams & Tristan Undy will support Yvonne and Brian this season. More details of fixtures will be issued late next month.
Congratulations to our u13s on winning the CGCL B League.
Quite a few lads played, some young ones filling in, we had plenty this year as opposed to not enough even for a team last year.!
