COWBRIDGE CRICKET CLUB


Junior Presentation Night

On a glorious summer’s evening the cricket club held its first Junior Presentation Evening on Friday 19th July 2013.

With the number of Junior Cricket members having swelled significantly over the last couple of years, the club felt it was time to recognise the talents and achievements of its youngest members.

Around 100 junior Cricketers and their families gathered for a barbeque, a Coaches/Dad’s v Juniors Cricket match and then the formal presentation.

The club was thrilled to welcome former Glamorgan and England fast-bowler and 2005 Ashes Hero, Simon Jones who presented the awards to the youngsters.
