Senior Club Player Pathway


Over the 2013/14 off season Cornwall went through a review of the Junior and Youth structure. One of the outcomes of the review has been to change the structure of the Youth section and incorporate it as part of the Senior Club.

At Cornwall we see this as a very positive move going forward for all youth players, allowing players to further develop themselves as cricketers and become comfortable with the step up. 

As part of this incorporation of the Youth grades into the Senior Club the following player pathway has been developed to clearly show the pathway from Year 8 through to the Youth and Senior Grades.

There are a number of the key features of this pathway:

1. The path through the high school years all lead back to Cornwall so players can return to Cornwall at any time and play cricket at a level that is appropriate to them.

2. Players playing morning cricket for their school can play afternoon cricket for their club if they choose.

This option starts in the first term of Year 9, with School Junior A cricket being played in the morning and the Youth Year 8 Post Christmas being played in the afternoon. Club games start later at 1.45pm to allow time to get to the game.

3. Players playing both junior and senior afternoon cricket for their schools can return to the club every season to play afternoon cricket when school cricket finishes, again at a level that is appropriate to them.


The senior club currently enters four teams in grade cricket. Premier, Premier Reserves and two, Two day grade teams.  These teams are graded so all the players are playing at an appropriate level. 

In past years, it has proved successful for players who have followed this path with it being beneficial for players to play against, and with, experienced players. It provides players the opportunity to develop skills and test themselves week in week out.
