The U11A team played 6, won 5 and lost just once. The U11B team finished fourth in the league, played 6, won 3, lost 3, with many of the team playing one or two years up. In addition, Josh Markson-Brown, one of the B team, has won the bowling award for both the East and West Leagues, with the highest number of wickets taken.

The junior section of Rye Cricket Club is planning a busy autumn of coaching opportunities for girls and boys aged 7-13 at Rye Sports Centre.

October 8:

Softball 6pm-7pm, hardball 7pm-8pm Cost: £35 for 8 weeks of coaching

October 6:

Free softball taster sessions for boys and girls aged 7-11, 6pm-7pm.

Rye Cricket Club is also running a free cricket programme from October 6 for 10 weeks for Rye Academy students in years 7, 8 and 9 from 3:30pm – 5pm. The aim is to develop a Rye Academy cricket team to play local independent schools. Fixtures have already been arranged with Claremont School, and games will be hosted at the Rye Cricket Salts.

Later in the autumn there will be sessions for older Colts, with a focus on encouraging dads to return to cricket by participating in the coaching sessions, with a view to their participation in playing cricket in 2022.

The autumn coaching programme has been supported by a generous grant from the Rye Community Shop.
