Youth cricket initiative launched in Ipswich

AN EXCITING new venture to encourage and promote youth cricket between Copdock & OIs, Ipswich and Ipswich and East Suffolk has been launched.

On Monday, August 22 the three clubs will be involved in triangular tournaments based simultaneously at their grounds between 10am and 4pm with presentations to follow at Copdock.

There will be four age group tournaments Under-nine and Under-11 at Copdock, Under-13 at Ipswich and Under-15 and Under-16 at Chantry Park, the home of IES.

Although matches will be competitive the emphasis will be on participation and enjoyment with post event presentations and a barbecue at Copdock.

The three clubs who all play in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship, are committed to encouraging and promoting youth cricket. Along with the Chance2Shine programme, this is a welcome addition to their existing youth development and coaching programmes.
