Lisburn Cricket Club 2018 Youth Section

2018 promises to be an exciting year for Lisburn Cricket Club and in particular our youth section. Callum Atkinson has been appointed our Youth Convenor for the 2018 season. Callum is supported by a number of other coaches at the various age groups.

Under 15s / Under 13s – Mike Grossett
Mike joins the club this year to lead our under 15 programme. Mike has been a Level 2 Cricket Coach since 2010. He has experience working in the county system in Wales and now works full time with the Northern Cricket Union. Mike will also spend time working at Wallace High School on behalf of the club. Mike will be primarily supported by Jonny Waite this season. Jonny joined the club in the off season and has a keen interest in coaching.

Under 11s / Minis – Michael Foster and Andrew Brown
The under 11s and minis will be lead by Michael Foster and Andrew Brown. Two LCC stalwarts, there are no better men around to give our youngest members and introduction into our great sport. The focus for this age group is all about having fun and participation.

The practice timetable is:

      Hi Jennifer,

      Sincere apologies for the lengthy delay in responding. Our website was unsupervised for a significant period. I know your request was from last year but if your son is still interested in cricket, then he would be more than welcome at Lisburn Cricket Club.

      Our youth training for under 11s is on Wednesday evenings from 630pm – 8pm. There will be plenty of coaches to chat to who can help you register.

      Many thanks

      Hi Donna,

      Sincere apologies for the lengthy delay in responding. Our website was unsupervised for a significant period. I can see from our records that Lucy and Jack are signed up to our youth sections this year. I hope they are enjoying their cricket. I know your request was from last year, but for this year we plan on running a two week summer scheme from Monday 30th July – Friday 10th August. This will be from 10am – 2pm each day.

      Once again sorry for the very lengthy delay in responding.
