Wrap Up - Junior Season 2022/23

Hello Lindfield Junior Cricket Families, We hope all our cricketers had fun and enjoyed what turned out to be a full summer of cricket with very few washouts.  This season Lindfield registered over 380 junior cricketers forming: 30 x strong boy and girl teams from U9-U17s, 4 x U8 Master Blaster teams and our newest cricketers attending the U7 Skills Clinic.  In our competition teams we had 10 teams out of 26 finish on the ladder in the top 4. A great season of cricket by all, congratulations! But not to worry, it won't be too long before we're back again ;)  PRESENTATION DAY We celebrated the successes of all our teams and players at our presentation day at Acron Oval. A great turn out, despite the heat. Click here to view all our Club Award winners for this season. We had the additional bonus of watching our Lindfield 50s playing their finals and showing the pathway for our cricketers - from cradle to grave!  TEAM PHOTOS Team photos have come back and they look fantastic. Further pick up dates will be available after the school holidays for those who are yet to collect - these dates will be communicated shortly.

 U17s PATHWAY TO SENIORS CRICKET With typical focus given to recruiting young players to the club, each year we farewell a group of U17s players. Our club pathway from Juniors Cricket is to Lindfield Seniors who participate in the NSW Shires competition. Steve Watts our Senior Club Captain will be happy to answer any questions you may have. (Email us)  PLANNING AHEAD As we finish one season the committee turns its focus towards discussing the season that was, and planning ahead for the season that will be. We would love to hear from our cricket community:

  • Any thoughts or comments you may have on how you feel we could improve the junior’s operation, its communications, coaching, player development, social events, anything really!

  • All constructive feedback is welcome (Email us).
