Essex Cricket is delighted to announce that our Mini Match Play Youth Cricket Tournament will take place this Tuesday 15, Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 August.

This year, we were pleased to see a record number of applications from various local youth cricket clubs as our Mini Match Play continues to prove extremely popular. We would like to say a huge thank you to our event sponsor, Allen Motor Group.

Their commitment to community development and youth empowerment has shone through once again this year as they have kindly provided free t-shirts and participation medals to all young cricketers taking part. This will provide unforgettable memories of the tournament for every child and we are extremely grateful.

Allen Ford’s sponsorship has not only elevated the tournament experience but also highlights Allen Ford’s dedication to fostering a positive impact in the local community.

This vibrant and competitive youth cricket tournament will see young talents showcase their skills while fostering a spirit of sportsmanship and camaraderie. Featuring enthusiastic young cricketers from across the county, this tournament will provide a platform for aspiring young players to exhibit their cricketing prowess and learn valuable lessons about teamwork, discipline, and healthy competition.

This event is also key in providing a platform for skill development and growth, inspiring the next generation of cricket stars.  The young cricketers had the opportunity to showcase their skills as well as learn from experienced Essex Cricket Community coaches and mentors.

Chloe Leveridge, Youth Engagement Manager at Essex Cricket, commented:
