Based on the fact that young players can only really develop as cricketers if they play regular competitive cricket, the DCB has been delighted to see the development of various youth leagues across the country over the last couple of years.
Now it is the turn of the WDCV, the regional body for cricket in NRW to get things moving. Yesterday saw a positive start with four teams playing against each other at St. Georges School in Cologne. The response has been fantastic and we hope that this will continue.
There are plans afoot also for a U19 league in NRW which will start in a few weeks.
If you are a parent or a player under the age of 19 and are interested in regular cricket in NRW, please contact WDCV Youth Officer Arif Jamal by E-Mail firstname.lastname@example.org
