Central Leader - - Sport -

The Corn­wall Cricket Club’s ju­nior divi­sion has notched up four fi gures.

They re­cently reg­is­tered their 1000th ju­nior player for the sea­son, giv­ing them the big­gest ju­nior base in Auck­land by sev­eral hun­dred mem­bers.

Par­nell and How­ick­Paku­ranga are clos­est to Corn­wall’s num­bers, but are sev­eral hun­dred be­hind.

Corn­wall club man­ager Adrian Dale says a ded­i­cated team of vol­un­teers who help run the ju­nior pro­gramme make the job a lot eas­ier.

“We’ve grown at a man­age­able rate over the last 10 years, so it’s not some­thing that’s been lumped on us for the fi rst time.”

Dale sus­pects the club has the big­gest ju­nior mem­ber­ship in New Zealand af­ter talk­ing to club offi cials from around the coun­try dur­ing the na­tional club champs, which Corn­wall hosts ev­ery year.
