The success of the adult cricket at Esher Cricket Club is built on the foundation of its youth cricket section. Several years ago, the club committed to investing heavily in the development of youth cricket and provide a path for young cricketers to play adult cricket as they went through the age groups. The ambition was that in time all of the Esher adult sides would be well represented by ‘home gown’ talent that is committed to the club both on and off the field.

We are proud of what we have achieved and continue to invest. Youth cricket is at the heart of Esher Cricket Club with over 400 Young Cricketers (YC’s) learning and playing the game each year.  Boys and girls from U5 through to U19 are all welcome. They enjoy dedicated age group managers and weekly structured coaching sessions for every age group. The quality of the coaching provided at Esher Cricket Club has led to young cricketers developing their skills and confidence to play the best cricket they can and most importantly enjoy playing it. Many of the young cricketers in each age group go on to represent their school ‘A’ teams and have the opportunity to get involved with the Surrey County Cricket Club performance squads.

Our professional coaching team includes three former 1st Class cricketers with international playing and coaching experience who are supported by an army of ECB qualified coaches, and other volunteers all of whom are trained and vetted to work in cricket with young people. We are proud to hold ECB Clubmark status which recognises Esher Cricket Club’s Youth Cricket programme.

From U8 upwards the YC’s play in competitive leagues across the county where we have an unrivalled match programme using a number of the best local pitches and New Road to hone match skills.  Because of the investment in coaching and development Esher CC has an excellent record of achievement in Surrey league and cup programmes.

The YC Committee is chaired by Geoff Ellis, Jenny O’Neil, Sue Da Vall and Duncan Pauline. Please find all Junior Cricket contact details below.

Development Cricket

We encourage all our older YC’s to integrate, train and play with the adult teams.  To help this transition for U15’s and above we supplement age specific training and match programmes with development cricket via the Surrey Trust League.  This enables us to put up to nine U19’s of mixed ages into a team with two experienced cricketers to play structured matches against other progressive clubs in Surrey.  This helps the players of all ages learn their match craft skills and play high quality competitive cricket after school or colleges finish the Summer Terms.


In addition to Development and adult cricket to encourage our oldest YC’s we offer a special student membership rate for U18’s and above. Each season we enter the ECB U19 T20 National Knock-out competition with a dedicated U19 Age group manager.
