Ribblesdale Wanderers’ Under 13s are setting new standards for junior cricket, having had a wonderful season, winning every game.

The entire team of Year 8 schoolboys was selected to represent Lancashire North East in the County Festival earlier in the year, with two younger boys having already representing Lancashire at Under 12 and Under 11 level.

Committed to the development and retention of junior players, the club is actively progressing boys based on ability, not age, and providing the necessary opportunities to become senior cricketers.

Not only have the boys enjoyed success in junior cricket, but they now form the Senior team third XI and two of them have already made the successful move into second XI cricket, where the club finished sixth in the Ribblesdale League’s First Division this season.

Add this to numerous junior teams representing all age groups, and the club has a thriving and enthusiastic junior section that fills the ground each Thursday evening in summer.
