What MP Academy plans to do in the future

New Ground
MP Cricket Academy has its most exciting season ahead as 2020 marks the 3rd year of having its own cricket ground. The ground is located at New Barn Farm, Kingsey Road, across the road from the Kingsey road allotments, 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. 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 over 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.

New Under 15
This year we hope to have more matches for the boys, including a brand new U15 team this year. We are planning to give the U15 boys friendly matches on non school days, wherein they can play longer matches of 30-35 overs. This is so that they can bat for longer, field for longer and bowl for longer, preparing them to play adult cricket.
Regardless of which club the children play for they can join in the U15 squad as they are only playing friendly matches this year. Which will allow the kids to play more matches and help improve their cricket.
We will be fixing games against various opponents including Private schools, Clubs and Academy's. These matches will generally be on weekends because most grounds are unavailable for kids to play on weekends but ours is specifically designed for our boys to use.
This new U15 team will also be of great benefit to the local adult cricket clubs as we will be able to provide talented young cricketers to add to their teams. Furthermore if the U15 kids play against other U15 kids it will help boost their confidence before going on to play against adults which is a different level of cricket. 
This year there is potential for teams from abroad coming to play against our boys, therefore this new U15 team will have a fantastic opportunity to play some international cricket. 

New 1st team
We are also introducing a brand new 1st team in which we will be playing Evening T20 matches as friendly games for anyone interested to join and enjoy.

We aim to create a better playing facilities for all children of all ages and abilities. We are just waiting for an investor to help us out so that we can continue to provide the best facilities possible for the children.

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 CouncilJoe Middleton, Andy Brich 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.
