  • Boys and Girls can start their cricketing experience with the Vine from the U7 level.
  • We aim to provide a balanced programme of skills coaching and training in low ratio groups with experienced and qualified coaches. They will be assisted by Dads who have played the game and both past and present first and second team squad members.
  • Every week the boys will learn new skills, take part in drills and play a match. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment!
  • As always, we would welcome support from Dads and Mums who would like to get involved.  If you have played in the past, so much the better, but there are many opportunities for all abilities and access to ECB Coaching training courses is available.  For Dads minded to play, the Old Oaks operate a comprehensive fixture list – see the Old Oaks section for details.
  • As we are the pipeline for the Club we are thrilled to see that many of our boys go on to play through the junior sides before graduating to the senior club

The first training date is 30th April 2017 at our Otford ground.


  • We enter two U8 teams into the MINI SUPER 8s tournament (Kwik Cricket format)
  • We aim to give all our boys the chance to play in a tournament but sometimes, due to the size of the class and the fact we are restricted to two teams, this is not always possible.
  • That said, we are always looking for opportunities to give the boys the chance to play competitive cricket.

Tournaments at the U8 level are not intended for experienced hardball players.
