North Mymms believe the kids are the future - and their junior section is enjoying a booming start to the new season.
Year on year membership has continued to grow with over 100 children now playing at the Home Farm-based cricket club.
Friday night training sessions are being offered for the club's teams between U9 and U15 and there is also the two national ECB programmes, All Stars for those aged five to eight, and Dynamos for eight to 11-year-olds.
A spokesman for the club said: "The energy during these sessions is amazing and we are committed to ensuring everyone is welcome regardless of age, background or ability."
The older juniors are also being encouraged to take the Herts Cricket Young Leaders course this year while there is a push to recruit more women, with fun sessions for ladies and girls taken by the club's specialist coaches starting on Wednesday.

The first team meanwhile got back to winning ways in the Herts Cricket League Premier Division with a four-wicket success at Reed.
The hosts won the toss and made 225-9 in 60 overs, Chanaka Ruwansiri the undoubted star for Mymms with 5-65 although there were two wickets each for Richard Oxley (2-25) and Dharmarajsinh Jhala (2-56).
