EHCC Warriors Teams

East Huntspill Cricket has entered 2x Youth 'Warriors' teams into the Taunton Deane Youth Cricket League (TDYCL), both of which will feature in league structures playing 16 over pairs cricket games. These games are played on fixed days for both teams (Under 11 & Under 13). Fixtures and locations for each game can be found in the links below.

 

Under 11 & 13 pairs cricket games feature hardball cricket balls so players are required to use cricket protective equipment.

Each player is also required to wear cricket whites. EHCC will provide each playing child with an EHCC branded Warriors shirt for each game. This is then handed back at the end of each game so it can be washed.

The fixture fee for each child is £3.00. This is to cover all the costs of the running of both teams.
