Hull Zingari Cricket Club



   AN ECB CLUBMARK FAMILY-ORIENTATED CLUB

CONTINUING TO VALUE ITS VOLUNTEERS

                                   **********

We are the longest-established cricket club in the city and have played under the same name since our foundation in 1896. We are an ECB Clubmark club and since 1910 we have played at the Hull and East Riding Sports Club on Chanterlands Avenue and share excellent playing and social facilities with football, badminton, squash and road running clubs.

We field 3 senior teams each weekend in the York and District Senior Cricket League  and have a thriving junior section with softball coaching for 5 - 9 year olds and teams at Under 11,13 and 15 age groups in the East Yorkshire Junior League.

After their comfortable win over HullCC last week, the Firsts host Beverley Seconds on Saturday in a YDSCL Division One game with a 12.30pm start and on the Bank Holiday Beverley first XI are at our place in a Hunters League Cup match ( 2pm).

Our Seconds are at Kirkella Firsts on Saturday ( 1pm) while on Sunday the Third XI were due to  travel to HICE but unfortunately the opposition could only field 5 players and had to concede the match..

The club is delighted to have been nominated  by the ECB to run an ALL STARS CRICKET programme. It is a national initiative, aimed at introducing youngsters aged 5 to 8 to our wonderful game. 45 minute sessions over 8 weeks start at our ground at 11am on Sunday 21 May and will continue until 9th July. The sessions will include instruction on batting, bowling , catching and  fielding but with the accent on fun learning. Cost is £40 and for that , juniors will receive a cap, kitbag, T -Shirt, bat, balls and stumps to keep . We will receive all the gear needed plus advertising material and we have plans to go into local primary schools to explain the programme which will be launched nationally by the ECB 

We are very luck that junior coach Roger Wilson has volunteered to run our programme and Roger has recently attended an ECB/YCB instruction course at Elland Road, Leeds. Parents can obtain more info from Roger, mobile 07949922053. Sam Powdrell is the first junior to be signed up. 6 youngsters signed up so far.
