Bickley Park Cricket Club is set to open a new junior academy this season.

The section will be run by current Kent U15 coach Neil Taylor and aims to provide a pathway to both district and regional representative cricket for youngsters aged between nine and 16.

Bickley Park’s long-term ambition is to make sure the academy provide a steady stream of future recruits for the club’s first XI in the Kent Premier League.

An assessment day for anyone interested in signing up takes place on March 29 and for more information, visit
