Junior cricket is a vital component of Disley Cricket Club.
We are a Clubmark accredited ECB Focus Club. This represents recognition of Disley Rams’ commitment to offer young boys and girls a safe environment to have fun and learn the game of cricket. Having access to coaching that will set them up for many years of success and enjoyment in the sport.
This year we will be running sides at U18, U13 and U11 in the Cheshire High Peak Junior Cricket League in addition to being an All-Stars Cricket hub for children from 4-8 years old.
Junior coaching sessions at Disley are run in conjunction with Sportsweeks, a professional sports coaching company based in Stockport.
All children also enjoy access to an expanding number of Disley Cricket Club ECB qualified coaches, making for a positive environment for your child to learn the game.
We welcome boys and girls of all ages, at any level of ability, to come and try out cricket in a fun and enjoyable environment with the aim of increasing their cricket skills and confidence.
We actively encourage parents to become involved. The real strength of a community cricket club like ours is an inclusive, friendly environment and we see parents as a large part of this.
Details of practice session times will appear here once confirmed by the management committee.
All age groups are based on the child’s age at 1 September the previous year.
A full programme of Junior Cricket Matches has been arranged from April to Mid July in the Cheshire High Peak Junior Cricket League. These fixtures as well as individual player statistics can be found on the Club’s Play-Cricket website.
Disley always endeavour to integrate Junior Cricketers into Senior Cricket at the earliest possible age. Our 3rdXI acts as a bridging step for more adult cricket experience.
We are very proud that many of our juniors and junior alumni play senior cricket, with the club having a great history of development and promotion from within.

We adopt a separate and dedicated administrative and implementation structure which is consistent with the overall Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Policy and Guidelines.
