AJ Teams & Fixtures

WD_aj-fixtures_topbanner_v3-white

We are really excited about this development for AJ Coaching as the children will enjoy playing matches and learn at a quicker pace through match practice. Our aim is not to win every single match but to be competitive and support the children in what they love doing and help them progress. We will be competitive but will also try to give everyone a game where possible. Last season we played 10 friendly fixtures in total and we will continue to organise friendly games for those who might not be available to play in league games.

Please have a look through the NEC league website for all the information and rules.

Venue: 

We will continue to book Dundonald Park as usual for fixtures and training on Saturday mornings. Some of the Sunday morning and Monday evening fixtures might take place at John Innes Recreation ground.

ADDRESS:

Dundonald Recreation Ground, Dundonald Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 3QH

John Innes Recreation Ground, Cannon Hill Lane, Merton Park, London, SW20 9ES

Philosophy: 

We want children at the academy to have the opportunity to receive quality cricket coaching and play league cricket so that they can progress further and have a sense of belonging. We know that the academy does that in some respects but next season we will have a home ground with the club house at John Innes Park (Merton Cricket Club) which will go a long way in terms of getting the feel of a cricket club.

 

Suitable for: 

For children already playing at their own club and making progress there, then our advice would be to continue at their respective clubs. But this presents an opportunity for those without a current club or who are still on a waiting list for a local club. Please email us or ring us if you want to have a detailed chat about this.
