Thriving Junior Teams At St Annes CC

We presently run 8 junior teams from under 10 to under 17. This means we have over 50 players taking part in competitive cricket respresenting St Annes CC.

The players range in ages from the youngest at age 7 up to our 17 year olds. We also run a thriving Kwik Cricket group which helps to generate our stars of the future.

This season we have also seen many of our junior players selected to play cricket at District level (run by the Lancashire Cricket Board) and representing the league at under 15 Level.

It has further been very pleasing to see many junior players representing the senior teams on a regualr basis in addition to several 18/19 year olds who've progressed through the junior teams to our First and Second XI.

The junior committee at St Annes CC recognise the value of a strong junior structure and are committed to actively promoting and funding our junior section. I wish to thank them for the help and invaluable support they provide.
