29 Apr 2015 : GXCC Junior Season
Hi All,

With the season now underway wanted to email a couple of quick points to everyone....

Rain! If a coaching session is going to be called off due to bad weather we will email all parents and also post on the news section of the website, so if there is bad weather about and you are unsure, then these are the places to look for information.

A & B Squads! You may or may not have seen which squad your son/daughter has been placed in for the year yet. However these places are not set in stone, the coaches will be assessing the squads over the first few training sessions to identify any changes that need to be made. The reason the squads have gone out already is to allow team managers to start collecting availability but there is always room for movement. We also need to ensure that squads are balanced in terms of size and to ensure we don't have a team full of just batsmen or bowlers!

Registers! We need to ensure that all children are registered in and out of training sessions. If your child is going to walk or cycle home from training then we need to be made aware of this so a note can be made on the register.

Any questions please get in contact with me.

Kind Regards


Head Coach

19 Mar 2015 : GXCC Junior Season 2015 - Important Information

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

I am writing to you to give you some information prior to the start of the junior season, which is fast approaching! The official start date is Sunday 26th April (not 19th April as previous stated) and will run for 12 weeks. As with last year U6s – U11s and the girls session will take place on a Sunday morning and U12s – U15s will take place during the week, please see days and timings for training below.


U6s (School year 1)                          Sunday           10am – 11am

U7s (School year 2)                          Sunday           9.45am – 11.15am

U8s (School year 3)                          Sunday           9.45am – 11.15am

U9s (School year 4)                          Sunday           9.45am – 11.15am


U10s (School year 5)                        Sunday           11.30am – 1pm

U11s (School year 6)                        Sunday           11.30am – 1pm

Girls (School year 2-7)                     Sunday           11.30am – 1pm (older girls welcome as well, please contact if interested)


U12s (School year 7)                        Monday          6.15pm – 8pm

U13s (School year 8)                        Tuesday         6.15pm – 8pm

U17s/Senior Training                        Thursday        6.30pm onwards

U14/15s (School years 9 & 10)         Friday             6.15pm – 8pm


The ECB and Club rules require only those on the register/enrolled to be at training. Please do not turn up if you are not enrolled as we do not want to put coaches or parents in a difficult situation and disappoint children by turning them away. Boys attending training sessions should wear appropriate sporting clothes (whites are perfect if they have them). Official shirts are available to be purchased from the Hawkinsport website ( Please ensure clothing and equipment is appropriately named so can be returned to owner if lost! U9s and upwards will all need to have at least a box and a bat, if you have any other equipment then please bring it along to sessions. Or to purchase more kit please visit Hawkinsport or any other sports store.


In the event of bad weather prior to the session taking place, please check the GXCC website ( and your emails for notification of cancellation.


As previously mentioned we will be changing the way age group teams are run this year. In previous seasons we have been fortunate enough that Mike Logan has helped run multiple teams, however this is not going to be the case going forward and we will need volunteers for each team.  The job does not require that much work and can be divided up between more than one volunteer per team, however, it is important that there is someone who organizes a team for each game and then people to score and umpire at the games themselves. Ideally some sort of prior cricket knowledge (even if it is basic) would be good, however we will be running an “education” morning on Sunday 19th April to help out new (and current if they would like) managers with scoring, umpiring and any other queries they may have prior to the season starting. If you would like to volunteer yourself to help with your child’s team please let me know. If a team does not have a manager then they will be withdrawn from the league and will not have any games to play in.  Thank you for those managers that have put themselves forward for the season but as you can see from the list below there are still quite a few gaps!


U9A – Adrian Abbott                          U9B – No manager

U10A – Richard Thomas                    U10B – No manager

U11A – No manager                           U11B – No manager

U12A – No manager                           U12B – No manager

U13A – No manager                           U13B – No manager

U14A – No manager

U15A – No manager

U17A – Mike Logan


As well as the weekly group training sessions, our team of coaches are also offering private coaching from the start of April and continuing on throughout the summer. If you would like more information or to book a session either speak to the coach directly or email

Hopefully parents with children in U10s – U14s have received the information on the pre season camps taking place on 9th and 10th April at Beaconsfield School, if you have not please let me know and I can email you a booking form. There will be camps running during the half term holiday and the summer holidays at Gerrards Cross CC, more information will be released closer to the time.

All confirmed fixtures (dates and venues) are now on the website so please have a look!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to drop me an email.


Kind Regards

Sam Bracey

Head Coach
