Cleeve Cricket Club held its junior presentation evening at the Sinclair Pavilion.

As Cleeve Cricket Club’s 70th anniversary celebrations draw to an end, one of the club’s most eagerly anticipated events took place at the Sinclair Pavilion, the junior presentation evening.

Some 60 people gathered to hear from the youth team coaches who summarised moments of brilliance and hilarity from the hot summer season. Awards were announced for player of the season, most improved player and Champagne moment for each side and all players received a medal who represented the under-15s,13s, 11s and Kwik Cricket for the younger boys and girls.

The highlightsof the season were the Under-15s Bristol & District Plate winners, Under-13s finishing mid-table and Under-11s ending third in a 21-team league, boding well for the club whose first team this year was almost entirely comprised of former youth team players.

Youth co-ordinator, treasurer and Level 2 coach, John Hance stands down from his youth role this year after 10 years with both his lads now first team players, so the club wishes to thank him for all his efforts which includes pulling together the youth presentation evening each year.

Thanks also to the parents and coaches for their time and include John Parsons, John Hance, Ian Wisniewski, Ross Basnett, Ben Hiles, Ed Clarke, Mark Jones and Phil Gostlin.

Thanks were also given to our generous sponsors who have allowed all teams to wear the same shirts and for coaches to be easily identified with coaches hoodies. They include ITS Construction, Parsons Scrap, Forrest Brown, WH Redding and Ben Hiles Wealth Management.

Indoor nets will begin again next spring at a date to be confirmed. Anyone interested in joining Cleeve can refer to www.cleeve.play-cricket.com or email club secretary Stuart Williams stuartw52@icloud.com
