Sutton in a first collaboration between The Asylum and UAJCA..
Players at 'Taverner' level were invited
and UAJCA and The Asylum are delighted with the take up for the
2-day coaching, which featured the Asylum' Pitch-vision feedback and
top notch coaching from Matt Dawson and Dom Bennett.

runners-up, Earby 3rd and Oakworth fourth.
u9 Pairs Cup Final
Our first UAJCA
under-9s Pairs Cup Final took place at Skipton on Sunday 26th June
between Settle Stags and home team Skipton Scorpions. The 20-over
match saw Settle bat first and tally 29 runs with skipper Harvey
Green leading the way with 6. The Stags total was severely curtailed
by a strong Scorpions bowling unit which captured 14 wickets.
Elspeth Protheroe was the leading bowler with 3-10, backed by 2-0
from Moheed Shafiq and 2-3 for Ryan Lee.
Scorpions fared much better with the bat, led by Captain Aaron
Macrae with 13 and Moheed with 17. Their tally of 71-5 had the
Scorpions as clear winners from a gallant Stags bowling effort by
Harvey Green and Jack Caton.
So Skipton made
a little piece of history with the inaugural Cup received by Aaron
Macrae from UAJCA Treasurer David Allen. Moheed Shafiq was adjudged
boys prominent at Taunton
Under 13Bs will go into their Taunton festival finale tomorrow,
battling for third place after they were involved in a thriller
today. Yorkshire won the toss and put Leinster in, and a strong
batting line up for the Irish side powered their way to 220 for 9
from their 40 overs
In reply Yorkshire made a strong start, taking lunch at 37 for 0
from 7 overs. They continued to look good after the restart but four
run outs at the top of the innings was always going to hinder their
run chase. Openers James Rhodes (23) and
Will Luxton (52)
had set the platform. They reached the last ten overs needing 70
runs with 5 wickets in hand. Despite some lusty blows from
(28) and Owen West
at the end, they fell just 6 runs short.
They picked up 13 points, one less than Leinster, but tomorrow's
game against Kent will determine whether they hold on to third
place. Whilst Cornwall and Leinster battle it out for top spot.

narrow defeat by Leeds.

gaps. He pulled short pitched balls into the car park and drove
anything over-pitched through mid off and the covers He was retired

The 2015 Presentation Night was a
huge success and we are delighted that CEO

OPT FOR CHANGE
UAJCA clubs have voted
overwhelmingly in favour of a new league system that introduces 2-stage
'Merit Leagues', similar to soccer-style Play-offs. The 2016 season will
also start later [1st May] and finish earlier [22nd July]. Under-9 cricket
is to be included in the mainstream season on Sunday mornings with the u-11
competition alternating with u-17 matches on Thursdays. Under-13 and
under-15s remain unchanged.
But the most
far-reaching change will be with regard to replay of matches, which must now
be re-arranged within 14 days of the original fixture.
Cup matches too are to
see change with all cup-ties being played on fixed dates on Mondays. There
will also be a Cup competition for under-9s for the first time.
The very popular UAJCA
6-aside festival will again be hosted at Sandylands by Skipton CC on Sunday
officer Mike Davison is now working hard on amendments to the rule book to
support these changes.

Excellence programme. Of the 500 players who attended the 19
District Centres [inc South Craven] 131 have progressed to the
Pathways coaching Bronze Centre next stage; a 1 in 4 chance. These

Administrator Graham Purdy said "One
of our main aims for year one was to establish just 2 points of
entry to the programmes, being representation & performance in CAG
cricket during 2015 and promotion from the DC programme as part of
broader catchment area arrangements (and removal of one-off trials).
This was to ensure transparency for parents & players on routes into
the system, with performance on the field determining
Gold/Silver/Bronze allocations for CAG players".
