- Retain young players within the game by providing them with additional opportunities to play with friends
- Create exciting match day experiences.
- Create volunteering opportunities for young players within the club

Statement on U19T20 competition for 2020
Whilst not being medical experts Covid-19 is almost certainly going to cause disruption to the competition so at this point we will be suspending the competition until further notice.
As factors outside cricket progress in the upcoming weeks & months we will be in a better position to see if Cricket can take place in this competition with an amended fixture/group schedule.
If we do have to completely cancel or drastically reduce the amount of games that can be played we will refund/part-refund all entrants accordingly.
Thank you for your understanding and rest assured if it is possible (& Safe) we will do our best to get U19T20 cricket played later in the year.
