All  junior fixtures ( except Under 9s) now on this website under " Matches". Season starts end of April but our Under 11 game away at Hessle on April 27 has had to be cancelled because they say they told League that they would not be entering a team this year  and Hornsea have cancelled our U13 match on April 30 because their team manager is on holiday and they have no one else to take charge of their team. We hope to re-arrange this fixture  later on in the season. Our U15 side are are away across the Avenue at Hull CC on April 28.

 Our annual NatWest CRICKET FORCE CLEAN - UP WEEKEND WAS A BIG SUCCESS OVER THE THREE DAYS.  It was the 14th consecutive year we have been involved with the project.Loads of work done on the ground -- painting fences,sightscreens, benches, clearing ground of rubbish etc. Thanks to Ian Walster and all NatWest staff and players who turned up and to Crown  Paints  in Hull for supplying the paint.Good club effort.

Congrats to Sam Elstone who has been selected for East Yorkshire Under 11,12 and 13 representative squads -- an  unique treble -- and to Charlie Rawlins ( U13 and U14 ), Amrit Cassim ( Under 12 and 13), Luke Riley ( Under12), Adam Palmer ( U14)  and Tom Jeffers ( Under11). As yet we have not received any request to nominate Under 15s or Under 17s for trials.
