Guildford Cricket Club has a proven track record in developing some of the finest cricketers in England.
The development of our junior section is at the very heart of what GCC looks to achieve and the club offers a first class environment for Junior Cricket.
Players such as Martin & Darren Bicknell, Ashley Giles, Rikki Clarke, Jade Dernbach, Ollie Pope & Will Jacks and Alice Capsey have all come through the GCC ranks.
Our objectives are clear – we want to foster a happy, safe and unpressurised environment where children can develop a love for the game that they can take through life and along the way produce the next generation of England cricketers.
We offer a vast programme of Junior Cricket for boys and girls. Our age groups start at Under 8, run right through to Under 17 and then there is a clear development pathway into Senior cricket.
Our junior training and coaching programme is designed and overseen by our Director of Cricket, Oli Soames, who uses only the highest quality ECB level 1, 2 & 3 coaches to deliver his coaching programme. Training and coaching is run throughout the year starting with an 8 week winter programme (starting in January) and then a 12 week summer programme (starting in April). We also run a number of cricket camps throughout the season, which we are looking to build on in 2023.
