We have five youth teams at Fakenham Cricket Club, Under 9’s, Under 11’s, Under 13’s, Under 15’s and Under 19’s. The Under 9’s are our newest side and will compete for the first time in 2019. The U11’s, U13’s and U15’s all play their cricket in the Norfolk Cricket Alliance youth leagues, all competitions start with a group stage that goes into a knockout stage and finals following qualification out of the groups.
Over recent years Fakenham have boasted many successful youth teams, reaching national finals on one occasion. Our Under 19’s is filled with players that have progressed through our youth system having joined the cricket club attending Kwik Cricket (which runs every Sunday morning). The Under 19’s compete in the Norfolk U19 Twenty/20 Blast competition and were crowned Champions in 2016 and 2017.
All our coaches are ECB qualified and offer quality coaching and mentoring to all our youth players.
