Gordon Cricket continues to work closely with Gordon Junior Cricket Club. Our Director of Junior Development, Bob Thomas, and coaches from the senior club are available to assist with grading teams and provide coaching for the many junior teams.
Gordon Cricket Academy
The academy provides off-season opportunities for talented players in the U13 and U14 age groups. This invitation-only group is overseen by current First Grade Captain, Tym Crawford, who is assisted by other highly qualified first grade players during three pre-season dates in August and a further two dates in January, prior to the junior representative season recommencing.
Green Shield Competition
Gordon Cricket is committed to selecting a quality representative U16 team to participate in the AW Green Shield Competition each season. All twenty clubs in the NSW Premier Cricket Competition participate in this elite competition played during the summer school holiday period. Application details are posted on our website at the beginning of February for the following season. Two ‘invitation-only’ trials are held before our Green Shield squad is announced. The squad meets to train in the off-season and plays at least two trial games in the Term 3 school holidays prior to the commencement of the competition.
