Brymbo Cricket Club has a long tradition of successfully developing a number of cricketers over the years. The Junior Section caters for youngsters from 5 - 17 years of age and fields representative teams at Under 9, 11, 13 and 15. All juniors are coached by qualified ECB coaches.
Many of our youngsters have gone on to play for senior sides and have also represented North East Wales, West of England, Wales and Glamorgan at various age groups.
The current Glamorgan CC Captain, David Lloyd, is a former junior at Brymbo. In a recent interview, David stated that he first started playing cricket at the age of 7 while watching his Dad and Uncle play at Brymbo. He also added "I have a lot of people to thank for helping me in becoming a cricketer, especially Brymbo Cricket Club."
2022 promises to be exciting times for the junior section of the Club. More than ever, there is a need to get juniors involved in playing sport and Brymbo Cricket Club aims to play its part.
The club, in conjunction with the ECB, has invested in a two lane net facility at the ground. This will enable our juniors to enjoy high quality practice facilities in a safe environment, supervised by qualified coaches.
Cricket in Local Schools
Last year, the club received grant funding from the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales and North Wales Police to run a number of coaching sessions for pupils in the local area. As a result, this year, during the summer term, we will be inviting a large number of pupils to the club so they can enjoy the many benefits cricket has to offer.
