GIRLS' CRICKET DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

Mark Jobling reports that after just weeks, the total UAJCA sign-up for the Winter Coaching programme has now reached 20 girls. Amazing. There are 32 places and at this rate we may fill them all from UAJCA without having to offer places to others!! Fantastic

#comeonthegirls ...............


WINTER ACADEMY OVERSUBSCRIBED

UAJCA is pleased to report that the popular Winter Academy at South Craven Sports Hall is now fully booked [32 students] with a short-list waiting of 4 further players.  The UAJCA Academy in 2019 is to be held for 10 weeks between Friday 25th January and Friday 5th April [exc Friday 22nd February, half-term].

The course runs from 7pm to 9pm, providing 20 hours of first class training for developing cricketers. Students include those who have played Representative cricket this year and those who have shown high performance levels in UAJCA league competitions. Once again the course will be conducted by Pro Coach Yorkshire Cricket [PCYC].


MORE HONOURS FOR UAJCA PLAYERS

Congratulations to Earby Cricket Club's Adam Hodge who has been named Lancashire Cricket Academy Under 13's Player of the Year at Lancashire Cricket's County Age Group awards presentation which took place in The Point at Emirates Old Trafford on Wednesday evening (21/11/18)

Well done Adam

UAJCA can proudly state it has provided cricket opportunity for the top player in Yorkshire and the best player in Lancashire in the same year!!


 

GIRLS' CRICKET DEVELOPMENT

First of all very many thanks to all parents and girls that turned out last night in awful weather at Sutton-in-Craven CC for the briefing on Girls Cricket in 2019. UAJCA is delighted at the response and is enthused about the chances of success for the initiative. We are of course grateful for the support and input from Mark Jobling and the NYWGCA in establishing their second centre at Skipton.

The principal requirement now is for girls to book a place [max 32] on the winter coaching course by phoning or emailing Mark. The course commences 27th January at Sandylands Sports Centre, Skipton for 10 weeks: January 27, February 3, 10, 17, March 3, 10, 17, 31, April 7, 14. Time: 3:30pm 5:00pm

The second element of League Cricket for Girls will of course unfold in the 2019 season and Manager Neil will be in touch with all of you with the fixtures as soon as they are to hand [likely mid-March]. The option for the girls to play regularly together on Friday evenings at Haworth CC and at other grounds on other days, will significantly expand the volume of the girls' cricket and their development should rocket forwards. I reiterate the intention that Girls will still be able to play in their boys club and where on occasion fixtures clash, the choice of which team to play for, rests entirely with the girls and their parents.

If you require more information please contact Mark Jobling [NY Community Coach][07889-168721] or via m.jobling@yorkshirecb.com

TOP HONOURS FOR UAJCA PLAYERS

UAJCA acclaims the successes of two of its players, who have both been awarded places within the Yorkshire County team structure.

Will Luxton [Steeton CC] [below left] was acclaimed as the Player of the Season by YCCC following his appearance for the North of England at the Bunbury Festival and his earlier century against rivals Lancashire. Will now finds himself a place on the Emerging Player Programme [EPP]

To his right is James Mukherjee [Skipton CC] who now has a place at the Yorkshire Academy following his stint with the EPP and County Age Group appearances in 2018, despite being injured for a while.

We're very proud of you both, lads. We wish you all the best in your quest in higher status cricket. Fly the UAJCA flag!!

Will Luxton James Mukherjee

TOP HONOURS FOR UAJCA PLAYERS

Coming in addition to the earlier report about Joe Birks and Archie Phillipson, YCB now announce that Steeton's Will Luxton is awarded 'Outstanding Player across all age-groups'. His 122 against Lancashire was the u15 Performance of the Year and Will was also named the Batsman of the Year.

Fantastic news for Will, coming after his appearance at the Bunbury for North of England. The accolades are well deserved.

Lachlan Doidge [Bradford & Bingley] is also the u13 All-rounder and Fielder of the Year. Former UAJCA player Kyle Welsh is also in the honours with the u15 Development Batsman of the Year. Very well done to both lads on your performances and bring a little honour to your Upper Airedale roots.

COACH EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY

UAJCA is conscious that our community does not have as many qualified Level 2 coaches as we would like. Concern about insurance cover also focusses the mind! An arrangement has been reached with the Halifax Junior League for UAJCA to have access to places on their course in the new year. We could have as many as 8 places if required. The standard ECB coaching course Fee is 285 and requires attendance at four full [not consecutive] days [weekends].  Depending on numbers, UAJCA will provide assistance with this cost. More information to follow soon......

JOE & ARCHIE TAKE COUNTY AWARDS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Skipton's Joe Birks was this years county under-10 Batting Prize winner after a great season at the top of the order. He was joined by Embsay's Archie Phillipson [right] who shared the under-11 fielding prize for his live-wire work in the field.

DISTRICT CRICKET BECOMES REGIONAL CRICKET

The 2019 season is to feature four 'Regions' [North, East, South & West] confirming long-circulated rumours of a replacement for 'District' Cricket. YCB is now seeking to recruit four Regional Convenors for a 12-month paid role. Interviews are to be held on 8th November. Anyone interested please note that Applications with CVs are required by 25th October, to be sent to Jack Stockdale at YCB.

GREAT TURNOUT AT UAJCA PRESENTATION NIGHT

Our Annual get-together at the magnificent Malham Suite in the Rendezvous to acclaim all our winners, both team and individual was a huge success with an increased attendance of perhaps 350 players, parents and officials.

 

UAJCA was fortunate to have three guests on the night with Sponsor Gareth Wooler [RN Wooler] joined by Mark Arthur [YCCC] and county first-teamer Harry Brook.
