The local cricket scene has been given a huge boost by the news that eight new teams have applied to join the Greenwood Hire Derwent Valley Junior League.

Another positive note is the proposal of a new series of under-nines friendly tournaments as Cayton, Cloughton, Flixton, Pickering, Scarborough, Sewerby, Snainton and Wykeham have all expressed an interest in taking part.

The under-15s league will become the under-16s Premier League, with the 10 teams playing each other once, with the extra fixtures being formulated after July 3 based upon where the teams are positioned.

The teams in the top four will play each other again while the other six will be allocated three fixtures each.

Six sides have applied to join the under-13s league, Forge Valley, Mulgrave, Scalby (who only resigned prior to the 2015 season), Seamer, Sewerby and Wykeham B, while Cloughton (who only resigned prior to the 2015 season) and Pickering C are wishing to join the under-11s league.

These applications will be put to the member clubs at the AGM on Wednesday, February 3, at Sherburn Sports Association Club at 7.30pm.

All clubs not represented at the AGM will be fined £25 as per league rules.
