Youth Section

About Us


Marshfield Cricket Club Youth Section has over 200 players registered, including nearly 90 girls. The section achieves strong results in many competitions and 14 of our players have been invited by either Gloucester or Wiltshire to play County or District cricket. We have around 40 coaches including 15 ECB qualified coaches and nine women. We also have great support from team managers for the boys and girls teams ensuring our continued success.
This season we had a professional coach supporting the development of the boys and girls and we will build on this model in 2023. We hope that this additional coaching support will support the youth section to deliver further on-field success, while maintaining our inclusive ethos. On the support side, the club has also invested this winter in our coaching capability and we’re excited that we’ll have a further three qualified ECB Core Coaches (level 2) working with the squad in 2023. We are also pleased to offer winter training sessions to members from November to March to help them prepare for the coming season.
Friday nights are always popular and we will be exploring how we can continue to grow whilst ensuring a safe and fun environment for all of our youth players. Any player who registered in 2022 will be able to re-register in 2023. We will also participate in the ECB’s All Stars Scheme, which will give new (and current) players between the ages of 5 and 8, an 8-week programme of cricket. Keep an eye out for information about this if you think it is for your child.
Here’s looking forward to another cracking season at MCC, see you in April if not before!
