We are back!!!
We have a full season of cricket to look forward to and from mid-May we can welcome spectators back to the ground, so pop along and visit us, have a brew or cold refreshment and enjoy the games.
More importantly the return of junior coaching. Starting on 18th May, then every Tuesday throughout the summer, we will see our coaches return to develop the future stars in the village or the next England captain. Every Tuesday (weather permitting) from 6.00-6.45 age group 3-7 year olds and then from 6.45-7.45 will be ages 8+ and completely free for all ages.
Guided by our ECB trained coaching team, we want to build the LBW style into everyone - Learning Before Winning!
Come along and have a go, bring a friend or the family - Parents/carers you may be tempted to join in too which we will encourage. We believe it is essential every child has access to learn the game but in a FUN environment. If you want to laugh then come along. Parking is also free after 6pm and as long as restrictions carry on to be relaxed, we will have refreshments available for all. We will have youth softball festivals for U9 & U11 ages this year and hope to develop into hardball sides in the next couple of years.
Follow our teams league performances online here https://thornhamnorfolkcc.play-cricket.com/home we also have some great scorers who are able (thank you to the hall for providing our internet signal) to score the game live - ball by ball which makes a Saturday in the office or a relaxing Sunday afternoon exciting to follow along if you cannot make it to the ground.
This year has seen some of our youth players be promoted and truly earn their places in the first team, such as F.Hewson & B.Richardson. Seeing them grow into young men and use their skills to earn their rightful place opening the batting and bowling. Nothing gives a coach more satisfaction than seeing the talent and confidence these players now have, it gives great hope for the future growth for Thornham CC.
We have a great new club online store for anyone able to purchase Thornham Cricket club kit - some great gift ideas available here including flasks and facemasks https://seriouscricket.co.uk/teamwear/stores/thornham-cc"
