We are very much looking forward to the season starting with training next week.
Nick Palmer is our new head coach (ECB Level 3) and will be supported on Mondays by JJ Singh,
and Tuesdays and Thursdays by Angus McMahon. Parents will also be helping.
A reminder that training days/times are as follows:
Monday – U9B (years 2 & 3) 5.30-6.40pm
Monday – U11A (year 6) 6.45-8.00pm

Training at London Road (SP10 1HR) begins tomorrow, 19th April, and the last training week
will start 19th July. Cricket whites are not required for training. Children from all age groups
need to bring a cricket bat, a drink, wear suitable clothing and trainers.
U11s and older need to bring hard ball kit (hard ball bat, gloves, thighpad, abdominal protector
(box) and helmet.)
We will ask you to confirm availability to play in the matches on the Andover CC website.
Please make yourselves available for as many matches as possible through the season, though
selection cannot be guaranteed. I will be sending a separate email with details about how to do this.
Matches will begin on Sunday 2nd May. (U15s have their matches on Friday nights and there
will also be Sunday afternoon matches to encourage this age group to begin playing with the adult teams.)
Please could you be sure to read the attached Andover Cricket Club training regulations and the
latest ECB guidance before attending.
Please Note: Spectators are currently not allowed at cricketing events so we request that you
remain behind the boundary fencing, in or by your cars and remain socially distanced. Only
coaches and volunteers will be allowed on the pitch area. Siblings are not permitted to play
anywhere on the site (grass or car park). If this request causes any specific concerns for you or
your child, please contact Clare Thain on 07771 663039 to discuss the issue. We will notify you
as soon as this restriction is lifted.
Thank you for your support with this.
