Hayfield Cricket Club U15 Review of 2013
Looking back on last year we can be pleased with the results, especially as this year's side was last year's U13s; next year should be easier as other sides lose their older boys. The team has improved, especially some of the younger players, but I must remark on the improvement shown by Jake Young with his excellent fielding and bowling, Simon Fraser with his all-round performances, and Anthony Thorpe who continues to improve and develop despite his tender years.
The coaching on a Thursday was not a great success, due to bad weather early in the season and subsequently U17s playing on Thursday evenings. This must be resolved for next year.
We hope to introduce Winter Coaching from January through till March at Chapel Leisure Centre or Thomas More School, Buxton, with the coaching staff from Derbyshire County Cricket Club plus help from senior players, which should allow us to give one-to-one coaching for any boy or girl who is interested in developing their skills.
In closing I would like to thank all the parents for their help in finding transport, teas and general support in organising the side.
