Our child hadn’t played cricket before but she was made to feel part of the team as soon as the first session started. Now she can’t wait for Friday nights!

Sandford St Martin Cricket Club is dedicated to the development of its junior cricketers and we welcome boys and girls of all abilities.  We run 12 Friday evening sessions starting at 18:30 and finishing at 19:45.


2021 Season 

WHEN:  30 April–16 July - Friday evenings for 12 weeks 

TIME:  18:30–19:45

All our lead coaches are ECB qualified. The section is broken up by ability as much as age, the emphasis is ensuring that the children have fun and develop their cricket in an environment in which they feel comfortable.


Friday evening sessions are delivered by our dedicated team of lead coaches:

  • School Years 2 & 3 – Steven Dobson (mixed/softball)
  • School Years 4 & 5 – Colin Simpson (mixed/softball)
  • School Years 6 & 7 - Tom Tanner (mixed/hardball) 
  • Girls School Years 5-9 - Linda O' Gorman (girls / softball)
  • School Years 8 - 11 - Richard Murrey (mixed/hardball)

Registration & Fees

We request all parents to complete an online membership form and pay the membership fee prior to the start of the season. If you are new to our club, please get in touch and we will see if there is space for your child to join. We will always try to accommodate as many children as we can. 


Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for exercise (trainers, a water bottle and a warm top for after-practice).  If sunny, we advise that your child wears a cap, and when the weather gets hotter that they wear sunscreen.


When registering, please inform the club if your child suffers from any serious medical conditions or allergies/reactions.  And please ensure that your child comes to training with their mediation such as inhalers.  All our lead coaches have First Aid Certificates and all coaches and assistant coaches hold a valid DBS certificate.

Performance Pathway

Please let one of our coaches know if you would like us to nominate your child for the County Development Squads that are run by the Oxfordshire Cricket Board. The philosophy behind the Performance Pathway is to make the link between Club and County Cricket stronger and more consistent.

Our children love it! The club is very welcoming and the coaches are great!
