Twenty20 Cricket Academy 5 a side net league begins

The 5 a side Twenty20 Cricket Academy net league competition kicked off today with three of the 9 teams taking part playing against each other in Group 1. The Bulldogs won the group with commanding victories against both the Alligators and Crows, who played out a last ball thriller with the Alligators just coming out on top. Each team played their innings at the same time in opposite end nets, to maintain social distancing, with matches lasting just under 40 minutes each. This is a format which works brilliantly to get 10 players playing competitive cricket until we are allowed to re-start the game as we know it. Players also used their own cricket ball. The Bulldogs charge into the Finals w

2020 Summer Cricket Camps - Bookings open

We're delighted to announce we will be running our camps this summer at Weybridge Cricket Club, Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club and Bagshot Cricket Club. We are also hoping to add Epsom Cricket Club in the next few days. We are sure many of you will be desperate to squeeze in as much cricket as you can having had none in April & May. To enable social distancing, we will be running three 2-hour sessions each day in small groups, each with a coach. Bookings can be made online. Places for each session are limited this year so we can keep to Social Distancing. #summerholidays #cricketcamps #surreycricket #bagshot #epsom #hampton #weybridge

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

Three matches have taken place since our last update, all in the Senior League. On Saturday Nick J and Matt A played out a great close match, with Matt A coming out on top by just 11 runs. Last night Stanley was once again in imperious form clocking up 106-1 against Sailesh who battled back well to reach 76-4 himself in one of our highest scoring matches to date. Sailesh then narrowly beat Thomas G by 10 runs in the second match, before rain, thunder and lightning curtailed the final match of the day. This leave Sam P out on top in the Senior League still: - #Twenty20CricketAcademy #SurreyCricket #JuniorCricket

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

Stanley M was finally defeated last night as Sam P left with a clean sweep of matches. In the first game, after a promising start, Rafe W collapsed to 27-7 against Stanley who scored 82-5 despite some excellent bowling from Rafe. Rafe batted first again in the next match against Sam, this time scoring a strong 73-3 which he must have felt would be enough. However Sam batted really well scoring 94-2 to take the match. Following that strong performance, the Sam v Stanley match was looking like it would be a thriller and we weren't disappointed. Deciding to bat again straight away, Sam scored 77-2 looking the most secure we've seen against Stanley's pace. That was a score definitely in Stanley'

Bowling Pitch Map - Improving your line & length

It was great to work with an under 10 young cricketer this week for the second time in a week. A left arm over bowler, by no means an experienced player yet, he was able to deliver 6 overs in some really impressive areas. I find this bowling tool really useful to demonstrate to young cricketers where they should be bowling, and why, and then "mapping" their deliveries over by over. Ask many young bowlers where they aim and you get a range of answers from "I don't know" to "the stumps". This tool just helps focus their minds and I often find big technical changes aren't needed, just a mental re-focus on where to bowl. It works even better if you put a reward down on the big yellow circle for

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

We have a new leader in the Junior League on runs difference only following Finn H's excellent performance last night in the Socially Distanced Net League. Scoring over 90 in both matches and bowling accurate away swing with the occasional in-swinger, Finn was too strong for his opponents. In the other match of the night, Carla M chalked up her first win, beating Charlie S in a nail biting finish with the players neck and neck for most of the match. Needing 8 to win off the last over, Charlie picked up 4 runs off the first 2 legitimate deliveries but then "roofed" the next one to be out caught and lose 5 runs. Charlie continued to fight needing a 6 off the last ball to win and then 4 to win

Surrey Slam Schools Programme re-starts in September

The Surrey Slam Schools programme for young state school cricketers re-start in September and this year is really going to be making a difference for those youngsters who not only don't get cricket at school normally but who will have missed out on significant chunks of the summer too. Training takes place across the winter months and then over school holidays next year. There are several hub sites across Surrey where players in years 4-8 next school year can get additional training from our team of coaches. The programme itself has been created and designed by former Iceland Head Coach and CEO of the England Cricket Association for the Deaf Charity, Darren Talbot. Places are open for sign u

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

Stanley M continued his fine unbeaten form seeing off brothers Bhuv and Sailesh last night in the Socially Distanced Senior Net League. In the first game Stanley bowled skillfully to keep Bhuv to just 36-4 before taking 94-1 off Bhuv's rusty left arm spin. The next game saw the brothers against each other and it was clear they knew each other's games inside out. The game came down to the last over with scores identical but Bhuv held his nerve to win by just 7 runs. Stanley then continued in the same vein, despite some excellent batting by Sailesh, coming home winner by 43 runs to cement his place at the top of the table. #Twenty20CricketAcademy #SurreyCricket #JuniorCricket

Academy Week Teams Announced

The coaching team have gathered remotely and selected the four teams for the August Academy Week. As yet, we don't quite know what form that week will take but we are hopeful by then a match programme will be feasible. #Twenty20CricketAcademy #SurreyCricketAcademy #SurreyCricket

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

A short torrential downpour couldn't dampen the spirits of the young players last night in the Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Junior Division. Dan B was in fine form, winning both his matches against Carla M and Sanjit B. Scoring 97-4 against Carla and then, playing back to back matches, Dan overcame Sanjit by 28 runs. Sanjit beat Carla M in the final match exhibiting some fantastic leg spin bowling and a range of shots with the bat. Carla defended brilliantly losing just two wickets with careful batting. Dan couldn't quite knock Alexander B off the top of the table having scored one less bonus point. #Twenty20CricketAcademy #SurreyCricket #JuniorCricket

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

A murky evening for the launch of the Senior League saw lower scores than the previous two nights of Junior League action. In the first game Joe B battled his way to 33-5 against Stanley M. Stanley's quicker bowling and powerful batting took him to victory scoring 63-4 off his 12 overs. Jamie H found it tough going in his first game, scoring 14-7 against Joe B, but some tight bowling from Jamie restricted Joe to 41-5. In the final match Jamie H set himself a target to retain more wickets and did that handsomely scoring 41-1, only the second player to lose just one wicket so far in these matches. He also bowled extremely well taking maximum bowling bonus points for the second game running but

Twenty20 Cricket Academy Socially Distanced Net League Round up

After two rounds of the Twenty20 Cricket Academy Social Distanced Net League, we’ve seen some great games in the Junior League. In the first round, Miles H beat Carla M by 1 run chasing down 65 off 12 overs. In the second game Miles tied with Ollie O, both scoring 68 with Ollie hitting a 6 off the last ball of the match to tie! Unfortunately, injury prevented Carla completing the final game against Ollie. Last night in the second round of matches Alexander B was in a belligerent mood smashing a league record 116-4 against Carla and beating Freddie S by 15 runs. Freddie then beat Carla by 21 runs. The matches are providing useful competitive, purposeful practice for our young Academy players.
