Glamorgan Cricket in the Community in 2010


Peter edwards, the Glamorgan Cricket in the Community Co-ordinator re- ports on another good summer


2010 was another successful year for the Glamorgan Cricket in the Community programme working in association with Sport Cardiff - the sporting arm of Cardiff City Council, who fund the community role.


The year began with a New Schools programme, which saw 12 schools from all areas of Cardiff take part in cricketing activities for the very first time. The schools received weekly visits from our community coaches during curriculum time, to give all new converts to the game the opportunity to experience cricket. A Dragon Sport after- school club was also set up in each school for those that wanted to learn more. The children were then encour- aged to link up with their local cricket club to provide an “exit route” to allow them to further develop their skills and bring them into the junior structure.


A New Schools tournament was held in late May at the SWALEC Stadium and was won by Kitchener Primary School from Canton. The children were also delighted to provide a “Guard of Honour” before a Glamorgan one- day game in 2010 and they will link in with the Welsh Asians Cricket Club to provide a new Under11 team in 2011.


As well as the ever popular Asda Kwik Cricket tournament hosted by Glamorgan Cricket at the SWALEC Stadium, the Urdd 50/50 tournament held at Cardiff Castle for Years 3 and 4 primary school children continued to grow. With 174 games at Under 9 level taking place in the region in 2010, the base of the lower end of the grassroots development pyramid is looking healthy. Nearly a third of the players selected for Welsh Under11 trials in 2011 come from this region which bodes well for the future.


At club level, congratulations go to Radyr and Creigiau for achieving ECB Clubmark accreditation in 2010. This is the benchmark laid out for running a cricket club in a “ safe and friendly environment” and this will help to attract future members. They join the Cardiff, Lisvane, Pentyrch, St Fagans and Whitchurch Heath clubs who are already accredited. Well done to all club members and volunteers for your hard work.


The 2010 Junior Indoor League, sponsored by Memory Lane Cakes, continues to flourish, with the aim of provid- ing winter cricket for clubs within the area. The League was oversubscribed in 2010 and provides an ideal oppor- tunity for clubs to further develop their young cricketers and also helps to introduce new parental volunteers and coaches to further strengthen their clubs framework.


In finishing, I must mention the Glamorgan Greencaps Disability Team. The team train religiously throughout the year at the SWALEC Stadium( Tuesday 4.30pm) and currently have a squad of 18 players. In 2010 they were lucky enough to play at Lords and Old Trafford and are planning to host an International Match at the SWALEC Stadium in 2011.
