Spalding Town CC Academy
We have recently finished the 8th year of the academy at Spalding Town CC. We pride ourselves on providing quality cricket coaching for all children between the ages of 5 and 18 regardless of ability and want to reach out to anyone who shares a love of cricket and wants to take up the game.
In 2013 we had over 100 children playing cricket and more than 30, who came through the academy, go on to represent Spalding Town CC at senior level. The number of players from the club gaining County caps at their age group has also risen rapidly over the past few years and all this is a testament to the hard work the coaches, matchday managers and of course the players themselves put in. A list of those players who have represented both Spalding Town CC and a County side in the same season can be found on our Representative Honours page.
For the past few years we have had U15, U13, U11, and U9 teams playing in the Border County Youth Cricket Leagues. Last year, all teams put in strong performances throughout the season but a special mention has to go to the U15 and U9 teams who finished as champions in their respective leagues! Well done to all involved!
