Welcome to the CCCL Junior Section play-cricket
website which is intended primarily as a source of juniors fixture and results
information for around 50 full and associate member clubs.
The ethos of the Junior Section is the development of young cricketers with the hope that many will go forward to play for their cliubs in the senior division of CCCL or other leagues in Cheshire. The Junior Section administers league competitions for age
groups Under 9 (‘pairs’ played with an Incrediball), Under 11 (‘pairs’ with a
hard ball), Under 13 and Under 15. Knockout cup competitions, for the Under 12, Under 14 and
Under 17 age groups are always well supported, with each group competing for its own John North Trophy.
A large proportion of the cricket clubs in Cheshire enter one or
more of the Junior Sections’s diviisions each season, so there is always varied and
healthy competition across the age ranges. The Under 9s and Under 11s league
competitions are divided into geographic zones with the winners and others from each zone zone competing in quarter- and semi-finals, and a final. The Under 13s and Under 15s are divided into
geographically-zoned mini-leagues for the first half of the season and then
into ability groups for the second half, thus giving all abilities reasonably
balanced competitive cricket. Trophies are presented to the winning teams in
each group with the winners of the two top ability groups becoming the league
champions for their respective age-groups.
