Sandiacre Town 4th XI
Sandiacre Town’s 4th XI is captained by John Murfin and run as a development link between the junior and more senior cricket.
The teams generally consist of the odd ‘elder statesman’, 2 or 3 older teenagers and a mixture of under 15’s and under 13’s junior cricketers.
In a less competitive league than the rest of the club, this cricket gives the opportunity for our younger players to be fully involved and further their skills in slightly longer forms of the game than they are used to.
They will gain valuable experience often competing with / against more senior and knowledgeable players and whilst the cricket demands involvement from all as we play to win, the aim of this team is to advance young talent through the different levels within the club, culminating with the 1st Team which has been successfully demonstrated over the last few years as a number of players have played for the 2nd XI and had occasional appearances at the top level within the club.
Following a successful campaign in 2015, where the 4th XI were crowned Champions of Division 6, the team will compete in the Newark Club Cricket Alliance Division 5 this year playing on Sundays and as often as possible their home games on the main ground.
