The 4 u9s lads who recently won the Yorkshire Leagues finals have all been selected for the u9s Bradford and Calderdale district team. Max Chaplin will captain the team, Harry Temperton will keep wicket with Mack Hall and Alex Quaife also selected.


This is a great achievement and is a stepping stone to the possibility of playing county standard which starts at u10s age group.

There is no county cricket at u9s level but to try and get promising kids ready for it, Yorkshire have broken the County Down to 6 sections (Bradford & Calderdale, North Yorks, Leeds, East Yorkshire, Kirklees and Calderdale and South Yorkshire) who will all play each other over a 5 week period. This is an introduction to proper 30 overs cricket, not pairs so when you are out you are out.
