Cardiff Cricket Club

The club is delighted to announce that David Kirtley has agreed to become the club coach for the senior section for the 2016 season. David decided to hang up his playing boots at the end of the 2015 season after 12 years of playing for the 1st eleven. Over that period David played a total of 330 games amassing over ten thousand runs including 21 centuries. David also captained the 1st team for 7 years where he led the side to two league titles and two Welsh Cups. David was also awarded the Clubman of the Year for his tireless work for the club in 2014.

David’s role will cover the pre-season training in addition to the weekly summer sessions at the club. David commented: “It’s a really exciting time for the club with the number of home grown youngsters coming through every year.”As a club, we have always been conscious of developing our younger players, while keeping some experience amongst the teams. We now have 4 Cardiff Players in the Glamorgan Academy in Kiran Carlson, Prem Sisodiya, Mujahid Ilyas, and Tom Bevan which is testament to the youth system we have in place as well as the hard work and dedication shown by the players themselves.

Club sessions, open to everyone, will be starting on March 3rd from 8-10pm until April 21st. We hope to be outside from the end of April.

Club chairman Robbie Weston commented: “The club is delighted that David has decided to take on this important role. His input to the club has been invaluable as a player and we are sure our young team will benefit from his experience and expertise in a coaching capacity.”

Cardiff Cricket CLub has always had a very close relationship with Glamorgan Cricket Club. It was only 20 years ago when both clubs shared the same playing facilities at Sophia Gardens before it became the Swalec Stadium.

Cardiff Cricket Club currently have 3 players in the Glamorgan Academny: Prem Sisodiya, Mujahid Ilyas and Kiran Carlson who will be under the excellent tuition of the staff at Glamorgan to develop them as cricketers.

Each year the juniors of Cardiff Cricket CLub organise a "fun walk" from our Forest Farm cricket ground to the Swalec Stadium for a T20 international to support Glamoran as well as fundraise for the junior section directly.

Use code "CCCardiff1" when purchasing tickets as it will support Cardiff Cricket Club Juniors.

Thank you
