What MP Academy plans to do in the future

MP Cricket Academy has its most exciting season ahead as 2019 marks the second year of having its own cricket ground. The ground is located at New Barn Farm, Kingsey Road,Cross the road from Kingsey road allotment, Thame, OX9 3JL. At the Academy there is a lot of excitement as the new site allows us to be able to provide a lot more cricket for the young people of Thame and the surrounding area. The Academy will now be offering two training sessions per week for each age group, giving children the chance to have more playing time to ultimately improve their and cricketing skills. Furthermore, this major step forward for us gives an increase in the number of fixtures, thanks to the evening and weekend availability. With the health of young people being one of the biggest concerns of the past few years, this is a great situation for the community to be in as there are now so many more opportunities to be outside being active through sport. Coaching sessions can now be delivered at an even better standard thanks to the planned grass nets because they give the most realistic match conditions for both batsmen and bowlers. MP Cricket Academy has a clear vision for the ground and its provision of a permanent home for its activities, further embedding itself in the local area.

Head coach Manoj Parmar said: “The most important part of this is for youth to get the chance to play every day, evenings and weekends. It’s a great opportunity and great news for the town.”

Mr Parmar added: “I would like to pay special thanks to Thame Town Council, South Oxfordshire District Council ,Joe Middleton,Steven McLaughlin and planner Jake Collinge for making all of this possible.”

Everything is in place for the 12-acre site on Kingsey Road and facilities will include two cricket pitches, six grass nets, a pavilion and car park, along with access from Towersey Road.
