Following last year’s devastation by COVID-19, Malton & Old Malton Cricket Club is hoping for a full fixture list and continued success in the 2021 season.
Since the two, century-old neighbouring clubs—namely, Malton CC and Old Malton CC—merged in 1995, the newly-formed Malton & Old Malton Cricket Club has succeeded in fielding four Saturday senior sides, an evening XI side, and junior sides for youngsters aged 8–15 years. Unfortunately, the 2020 season was reduced to just 9 weeks, but the club still managed to field three Saturday sides. Regrettably, however, no junior cricket was played.
This coming season, Malton & Old Malton Cricket Club will once again be holding junior cricket coaching sessions for boys and girls aged 8-15 years from Easter through to July. These will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6 PM at the Club’s main ground, on Old Malton Road, and led by their qualified ECB coaches.
Competitive teams for Under 11s, 13s, and 15s play in the York and District Junior Cricket Association, and tournaments for Under 9s will be held in the Scarborough area.
The Club is also hosting ECB’s All Stars coaching sessions for 5–8-year-old boys and girls. Please contact the English Cricket Board at ecb.co.uk to register your child/children.
The Club’s Saturday 1st and 2nd XIs play in the York and District Senior Cricket League (Premier Division and Division 2, respectively), and their 3rd and 4th XIs play in the Scarborough Beckett Cricket League (Divisions 3 and 4). They also have an evening XI and a development team in the Ryedale Beckett Cricket League.
The Club is always looking to increase its playing members across all levels of ability; and anyone interested in joining the Club, whatever capacity as a player or helper, is most welcome.
Cricket is a spectator sport. So: if you have time on your hands and nowhere to go, you can join Malton & Old Malton Cricket Club’s loyal band of spectators. They would be pleased to see you any time at the ground or in the Clubhouse for refreshments. The bar and social area is also available to hire for Christenings, Anniversaries, Fundraising Events, meetings, etc.
For any further information regarding the Club, or to hire the clubhouse, please contact our Secretary, Joy Hudson, on 01653 692223.
All Stars Cricket for Children Aged 5-8 Years
An initiative from the England and Wales Cricket Board aimed at providing a great first experience in cricket.
The programme is delivered across England and Wales at over 1,500 fully accredited All Stars Cricket centres. It is a fun and active way to develop your child’s skills, and through our eight week programme they will learn lots—as well as make new friends—in a safe and inclusive environment.
All girls and boys are welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, personalised shirt and cap to keep so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. Mums and Dads are encouraged to take part too.
