Club kit is now available to order for the forthcoming season. We appreciate that the kit is fairly costly, so the only item we would encourage you to buy is a playing top. The rest is optional and you are welcome to purchase as much or as little as you wish (or money allows!). 
The full range is available from Small Boys through to XXL. The kit can be accessed through the 'Cloud 9 Kit' tab to the left of this article, or just click here. The whites will have name and number on the back, while the rest of the items will have initials on.
After selecting all of the items you wish to purchase, please put your surname, squad number and initials, into the 'Special Requests' box. The list of squad numbers can be found under the 'Team Backworth' tab on the left.

Well it's that time once again. The 2015 cricket season is fast approaching and as always, we at Backworth are all hugely excited for the months ahead. After an extremely successful 2014 season across all age-groups and teams, we are optimistic for another positive and successful season. Let's hope the weather stays on our side this year!

Under 11 and Under 13 training will take place on Sunday afternoons from 3-4pm at Astley High School, Seaton Deleval. The sessions start on Sunday 11th January.

All senior teams, U15 and U18 players train on Sunday afternoons, immediately after the juniors from 4-6pm, also at Astley High. Those sessions start on Sunday 1st February.

Cricket Force 2014 will be held across the weekend of the 4th and 5th April. 

As part of the preparation for the 2014 season, we will once again be taking part in the annual national event 'Cricket Force'. Across the 2 days, we will be ensuring the ground is ready for the forthcoming season and all preparations are in place. The task list will be confirmed at a later date.

It would be fantastic if all senior and junior club members, friends, family and members of the local community could take some time out of their weekend to contribute to the success of the weekend in some way. Hope to see you there to get ready for another successful cricket season.
