YMCA Cricket Club is today celebrating the news that one of its most promising youngsters, James Norris has been selected to play for his county side, Gloucestershire. The all-rounder is due to play his first game for the county, at Cardiff against Glamorgan, on Tuesday 8th June.

Norris - another product of the YM's successful youth set up

Norris is a member of the YM's talented Under 11s squad and has, understandably, been making quite an impact this season, thanks to a string of fine performances. Word of Norris' exploits soon reached Fourth Eleven Skipper, Ed Hollinghurst who was quick to offer the youngster a taste of senior league cricket during the recent victory over Almondsbury and, in the process, ensured that Norris became one of the youngest players ever to represent the club in the league at adult level.


Steven - wishing Norris every success

"Well done James"
The announcement came as no surprise to Norris' Team Manager, James Steven who said, "I am delighted that James' natural cricketing talent has been recognised by the county. I'm sure all his cricketing friends from the YMCA U.11s will want to join me in wishing him every success. Well done James!"

Norris is yet another product of Golden Hill's exciting youth set up, which can boast up to 30 Under 11s players. Everyone at the club hopes that many more juniors will follow in the footsteps of the established senior players such as John Colley, Tom Milsom and Chris Machin, all of whom have begun their cricketing careers in the youth teams.
