Thanks to the help of all the volunteer coaches, committee members and helpers, together with the enthusiasm of the children, Twyford Colts has continued to grow and improve.
The Colts meet every Friday evening at the beautiful grounds of Hunter Park from 6pm, finishing at 7:30pm for under 11s and under 9s, 8pm for under 13s. The children train with our experienced, qualified coaches and very able assistants. All those involved in the Club are DBS checked (previously called CRB) and approved.
In addition to enjoying seeing the children play on Friday nights, the Club offers a barbecue after training to both parents and children and this has proved to be hugely popular.
Everyone involved in the running of the Colts, are volunteers who give up their free time to coach the children. We are always in need of further help in all areas of the club from coaching to making tea so please let us know if you are able to offer any help at all. If you would like to be involved, please contact the club on firstname.lastname@example.org.
For 2019, the Colts have three squads – U9, U11 and U13, and all squads welcome both boys and girls. We also have All Stars cricket launching in 2019, for 5-8 year olds. See the homepage for details.
Sometimes the weather alters our plans so please ensure you have check the website on Friday afternoons for any announcements. Managers will let you know if the Sunday match has been called off. You will always be notified by email, phone or a flier if you have been selected to play in a match.
For Friday training, children need to wear a white TCC Training Top and dark track suit bottoms or shorts. A warm top for chilly evenings, drink and sunscreen are also advisable. All kit can now be purchased at www.seriouscricket.co.uk/teamwear/stores/twyford-cricket-club. A handy guide for buying junior cricket equipment can be found here.
All those selected to play in matches will be required to wear full cricket whites: a Tywford Colts Match Shirt, white cricket trousers, Twyford Colts Cap and protective box. Please note that membership does not guarantee a place in the team but we try and give each child at least one chance to play in a match.
Please remember to clearly label all your kit.
Equipment – there is no need to buy anything initially as we have plenty of bats, helmets pads etc to go round. However if you are an U11 or U13 player, you will need to buy your own box and jockstrap. Without this essential protective gear you will not be allowed to take part in training or matches.
U9, U11 & U13 matches are nearly always played on Sunday mornings, meet at 9.15am to warm up and be ready to start at 9.45am (but check with your manager).
It’s great fun and it’s a good way to make new friends – but not just for the children, but for parents too. As the season warms up more and more parents stay on a Friday; some bring picnics and we hold a bbq after each session from 8pm. Just relax after a hard week at work, listening to the sound of willow whilst sipping chilled wine and chatting with friends!
Some join in with helping……………… the choice is yours!
We look forward to welcoming you along to the Twyford Colts.
