Four years ago, your feedback taught us that juniors felt unable to continue playing after junior cricket finished at U15s.
Southgate CC took the ambitious step of creating an “Academy” training squad which not only bridges the gap, but does so in a fun, enjoyable, educational and for those who wish, a challenging opportunity throughout the year.
The subsequent success of our academy players has been very exciting with high numbers making the step up to senior cricket in the summer and our Development XI securing back to back Middlesex Cricket Board Development Shield wins.
To maintain this progress, we are delighted to confirm the Academies 2015 winter programme and announce three exciting developments:
First, the Academy is to be run by experienced club members and ECB coaches Jeremy Dangerfield and Rob Johnson ensuring academy members continue to enjoy access to a high quality, safe and enjoyable experience.
Secondly, thanks to their contacts, the Academy will be utilizing the state of the art Middlesex CCC Indoor School at Finchley every Thursday’s evening, following in the footsteps of England ODI captain Eoin Morgan in using the state of the art facilities.
And thirdly, perhaps most important of all, thanks to the ongoing support of U&M Group, the Academy’s 8 week programme costs just £80!
Registration for the Academy could not be simpler:
Southgate CC Academy Winter Programme 2015:
The Academy runs for eight consecutive Thursdays (12th Feb to April 2nd).
