Junior Gloucestershire Restricted 2018 Tournament Report 

Juniors from across the county descended on Cheltenham Ladies College to battle it out to be County Champions.  Here are the winners from the weekend:

There were some great games to watch across all the events in the age groups. Special mention goes to those players who were playing in age groups above their true age group. This is good match play experience for everyone involved and you will all learn a lot from playing players older than yourselves. 

Well done to all of our new county champions and please remember to look after the trophies.

U18 – 2017/18 Season

Training has got better this year, numbers have grown and player attitudes have started to change. Training provision has improved, largely due to the return of Dom Jones on regular basis.

The under 18’s have had a better season compared to 2016-17. We started off the season with some tough losses to Avon, Devon and Cornwall. However, as a group the players worked hard to try and turn results around. They were eventually rewarded with a 19-1 victory against Worcestershire in February. The players were handed one last heavy defeat of the season to a very good Dorset side.

ICT was just around the corner and Gloucestershire took a very young side, featuring 3 under 16 players. After a tough opening couple of days, the players were able to get there first victory against Middlesex. Building on that they followed up with a great win against Isle of Man. This run came to an end at the hands of Cumbria, leaving Gloucestershire to finish 30th out of a possible 32.

A big thank you to all those who have supported me this year. Especially Dom, Bex, Dave and Sam Evans (team managers).

Onwards and upwards for 2018/2019.

U16 – 2017/18 Season

We entered a team into the Shire’s League hoping that when the new season started we would have enough players to fulfil a team in order to participate in the League. As a team we were only able to make one official match, due to girls being a shortage and the fact we were given teams along the coast.  In October, it was unfortunate that we needed to pull the team. A few competitive matches locally were set up to give players an opportunity to partake. Players really enjoyed these, however, once again the team was struck by illness and injuries. Which did make the scheduled format a tad tricky. All players rose to the challenge and seemed to really enjoy themselves.
