Sandiacre Town 3rd XI
Sandiacre Town’s 3rd team are captained by Peter Trembling and play in Division 5 South of the Derbyshire County League. We are the joint highest placed 3rd team in the county and accordingly play at a very competitive level, generally against first teams.
We were in Div 5N for some time but the move this season to 5S means we have some exciting local derbies ahead with the likes of Risley, Ockbrook and Spondon.
The 3rd X1 is a platform for many young players to perform at competitive level before making the step up to the 2nd and ultimately the 1st X1. Any young player who clearly has ability is given the chance to perform in our team. If you can bat, you will get the opportunity. If you can bowl, you’ll certainly get the overs whilst myself and other more senior players watch from the slip cordon and always ready to offer encouragement and support.
We are always keen to hear from good young cricketers, and indeed older ones too, who wish to have the opportunity to showcase their talent. You will get the chance to do that at Sandiacre.
We play our cricket hard and to win but with a smile on our faces and a few jars (or coke’s for the u18’s) after the game!
