Gedling and Sherwood Under 11’s Cricket Team

The new sponsorship deal includes pitch side advertising at the Club which is located on Regatta Way, in Gamston.

Our sponsorship comes at an exciting time for the team after they were crowned champions of the Under 10’s West Division League last year after going the whole season undefeated.

The squad is set to face another busy summer this year defending their title in the Notts Youth Cricket League and playing teams from all across Nottinghamshire.

Everyone at Air-IT/ MBC is backing them to go all the way once again and to replicate last season’s impressive performance.

U11 Team Captain, Jamie Gell says:

As captain of Gedling and Sherwood Academy U11 team, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your generous sponsoring of our club. It is deeply appreciated.

About the U11 Team and Gamston Cricket Academy

Gedling and Sherwood CC logo - Air IT supportThe U11 team is part of Gamston Cricket Academy which is the junior section of Gedling and Sherwood CC. The Academy was set up in 2009 to promote and encourage cricket as a sport to children of all ages and abilities.

The Clubs growing Junior Academy caters for ages 8-12 and has over 70 children currently benefitting from ECB level 2 & 3 qualified coaches as well as the dedication of many parent volunteers.

The Academy’s youth development programme has seen a number of young cricketers excel to become hard ball players – some of which have been picked to represent Nottingham at County Level.

Results so far – 4 wins out of 4

Despite the first two games of the season being postponed due to bad weather, the team have gone on win all of their next 4 matches against Plumtree, Attenborough, Caythorpe and Ellerslie – carrying on from where they left off last year – and currently sit second in the table.

Team Captain Jamie Gell comments:

I’m pleased to say we remain unbeaten in our first four games. There have been some fantastic individual performances to date and everyone in our squad has contributed. We presently sit second in our league and hope to continue our unbeaten run against Radcliffe on Trent.

As you can imagine, the young cricketers have their hopes set on another successful winning season. But for now their attention is firmly fixed on their next match due to be played away on Thursday 18th June against Radcliffe on Trent.
