With sub zero temperatures, the news you have all been waiting for in the colts section, winter training will be starting on Sunday 4th February at Farnborough Sixth Form College, times for teams training sessions will be published next week, watch this space. Like to advise parents not to purchase any Cove Clothing right now, as we have asked the league whether we can play in colour clothing for the 2018 season, I know a few other clubs are keen. Also I have asked Serious Cricket to put together a discounted bundle for colts clothing for the 2018 season, this will be available after the first winter training session.
PINK BALLS – all boys and girls cricket in the NHYCL will be played using a pink ball in the 2018 season. Some clubs due to having red ball stock can still use red cricket balls on weekend day matches. Cove will be swapping totally to the Pink Ball for all Hard Ball Cricket in 2018.
North Hants Cricket League are changing the girls age groups to U9, U11, U13 and U16 for the 2018 season. U9 and U11 cricket will be soft ball. Cove will be running four girls teams for the first time ever in 2018.
