There will be matches starting at 7.00pm and 8.00 pm, with the younger players playing first.
The games will be suitable for players from years 2 to 10 inclusive, depending on numbers there may well be an opportunity for some players in the middle of the age range to play in both divisions. The only stipulation on ability is that players need to be able to bowl overarm.
Within the junior division I am keen to see a number of teams with at least a couple of girls, I think there is sufficient talent within our girl membership in this age range.
The rules will ensure that all players get to bat and bowl (except keeper). Games will be played with an Incrediball (or unbranded equivalent) which has a soft core.
Players will be assigned to teams, teams will have weeks off when they do not have a game.
Entries will officially open at the Presentation Evening on 6th October, if you cannot make the Presnetation Evening, there will be a link created on the blog very soon afterwards.
Awards up to and including the under 15 age group awards will be presented, the under 17 awards will be presented at the Senior Presentation Evening on 28th October.
On this evening, entries for the Indoor League will open, places will be assigned on a first come first served basis.
If you are the holder of a trophy from last year and have not returned it, could you please return it to either your Team Manager or the clubhouse. (Under 9 awards are perpetual and do not need to be returned).

We will be running an indoor league on Friday nights, starting on 3rd November, this will be in Richmond School Sports Hall.
Entries for the indoor league will open at the Junior Presentation Evening on Friday 6th October. The indoor league is suitable for a wide age range, there will be different divisions for different age ranges, anyone that can bowl overarm is good enough, those that play regular adult cricket may be too strong.

This will run in a round robin league format, with two matches taking place at a time. Matches will be 8 overs a side and start at 1.30, therefore things should wind up about 6.30.
There will be three Richmondshire teams, two from Darren's U11 squad (Richmondshire A and B)and one from Mike's U9 squad (Richmondshire C) along with teams from Darlington and Barnard Castle.
Each team will play a total of four games, at any one time there will be one team resting.

This is because the Richmond Mavericks will be completing a re-arranged fixture on a wicket near the clubhouse. The Mavericks play in the Wensleydale Evening League, they include Mike Layfield and some others of a lower ability level, it could be fun to watch.
