Our 1st Team has a great set of young and senior players with a core of the side having Premier Division experience and a wealth of talent amongst the rest of the team. With a focus and direction on improved coaching and practice techniques in 2021, we aim to field a team with the ability to achieve success.
Historically the team year on year have played in the top divisions of league cricket in Leicestershire, but over recent years have unfortunately dropped down a couple of divisions and are now in need of improvement to ensure we return to the top where we belong as soon as possible.
Under the guidance of the experienced Pete Shaw our Director of Cricket and Captain Sam Smart, 2021 sees the 1st Team in Division Two of the Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket League with a focus on gaining promotion as a priority.
Always on the look for new players to join the club and become part of our future, we have a long-term coaching strategic plan in place to improve individual players ability and raise the standard of cricket at our club.
Working with the 2nd Team and the Academy as ‘One Club’ and with dedicated teamwork, we aim to include everyone in raising the standards at the club and improve the fortunes of both our 1st and 2nd Teams as quickly as possible.
We are looking forward to Sam and his Vice-Captain Phil Crouch leading the team to success in 2021 and beyond
