Leagues and competitions entered by HCC juniors.

In 2019 the Club will be entering sides into the IDentilam League (IDL), the North Mid Sussex League (NMSL) and, for the U9/10s, U13s and U15s, the ECB National Knockout Cup. Teams will also be entered into the Sussex Junior Festival competition which takes place in the late summer. (Dates for the 2019 festival can be found here)

The IDentilam League is organised into two divisions for each age-group and Horsham CC, as a Premier League Club, enters a team in each 1st Division of the League. IDentilam League matches are played throughout the week including weekends but those in the North Mid Sussex League are played on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. League entries for our age groups this season are as follows –

The juniors are coached and managed by a team of volunteers who have attended ECB training courses, adhere to the ECB safe hands policy and are CDBS checked. We also rely on the help of parents to help on match days with scoring and umpiring. If you can help please let us or your manager know.

ECB Clubmark documents are available on the club noticeboard or on The Clubmark Policies and Documents page – Read More

Please note that for young players under 18 years of age, Horsham Cricket Club will adhere to the ECB’s instructions on helmets.
