Enfield Cricket Club – Dill Hall Lane, BB5 4DQ
Hello and welcome to the 2nd edition of the Enfield Dragons newsletter. It’s been about 3 months since our last one and it’s been an action packed 3 months! We’ve made some great strides towards where we want/ need to be.
Indoor nets have started and we’ve seen steady numbers attending regularly. The feedback I’ve had from some of the gang has been positive so far. I had a quick word with a few you and stressed the need to recruit more members. While I’m conscious that we need to provide quality coaching, facilities and equipment to our junior members, we need to up our numbers. Bigger numbers equals better training nights, more teams, more new friends and more fun! We’re about to move our training outdoors in the coming weeks and I’m sure we’ll see a positive upturn.
I have the pleasure of inviting you all to a preseason meeting to be held at the club on Friday 7th April at 18.45. Free tea and coffee will be on offer and the bar will be open as usual. Everyone with an interest in the juniors are welcome – parents, kids, club members etc. It’s very important that you attend this meeting if possible. I’ll be updating you all on our plans for the season, introducing you to the coaching team, running through some of the changes we’re making and revealing some exciting news!
I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate 2 members of our team who have recently completed their initial steps towards becoming fully qualified coaches. Lewis Garratty and Kieran Shackleton have both passed their ‘Coach Support Worker’ qualification. The 1 day course is developed by the ECB and delivered by the Lancashire Cricket Board. THIS IS THE FIRST OF MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR COACHES AND VOLUNTEERS TO DEVELOP THEIR SKILLS. Keep your eyes peeled for more opportunities
Once again, thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to see you all on Friday 7th April.
