The Junior section consists of several age groups ranging from U10 to U15, playing across Lincolnshire and the surrounding area. The club makes efforts to provide our juniors with as many games as possible including hosting tournaments against local opposition and creating pathways for juniors to have the chance to play senior cricket, including our Saturday 4th XI and Sunday 2nd XI.
The club is one of several in Lincolnshire that encourages women’s cricket with our own hard ball women’s XI. Playing in the Lincolnshire League the women’s XI play at the weekends in a T20 format.
