The Cornwall Youth Cricket Association was renamed Cornwall Cricket Youth at the 2019 AGM to go
along with the branding set out in the new County Partnership Agreement with the ECB. The
purpose of the association remains the same – to oversee youth cricket from AllStars all the way up
to U19s T20.
The 2019 season saw the association reintroduce a league structure at U11, U13 and U15 age
groups, alongside county cups at the same age groups (the U11s cup being a new cup). The cups
were the competition focus and would give the county champions at each group, the leagues were
about playing matches and participation. The cups were won by St Just at U11s and Truro at U13s
The U19s was won for the 1 st time by a combined Menheniot-Looe/Callington team in 2019, and
there will be a renewed drive to increase the amount of U19 T20 cricket played in the coming
season. Up to three Clubs can merge to create a team, so collaboration between Clubs is actively
encouraged. U19s entries open in May.
In 2019 137 youth cricket matches were recorded on Play-Cricket, an increase from 91 matches in
2018. There were 32 Clubs delivering youth cricket, though there were 6 less teams at U11s and 7
teams less at U15s.
Allstars cricket continued to grow in 2019 and helped see the increase in the number of U9s softball
festivals across the county. This is set to grow again in 2020 as Clubs look to strengthen their Allstars
sections and encourage children to go on to join their junior clubs.
The new ECB initiative to follow on from Allstars ages 8 to 11 years is Dynamo Cricket, and starts in
2020. An 8 week programme of activity and personalised kit is provided for Dynamo Cricketers,
along with more digital and app based activity.
The County Partnership Agreement is at the time of writing nearly complete, and sets out the goals
for the coming years in Youth Cricket. A strong focus will be on girls cricket and increasing the
number of volunteers at Clubs, as well as increasing the number of Clubs and teams playing youth
Finally thank you to all the Clubs and their volunteers, parents and coaches who run junior cricket
across the County. Your hard work and support continues to ensure children are given introductions
and access to cricket, and we hope more and more children (both boys and girls) can be encouraged
to play the game in the present and the future.
