David Rishton and Lee Booth have both been in terrific form with the ball so far, taking 40 wickets between them to create a potent bowling attack. Broom has shown himself to be a genuine all-rounder having managed to chip in with some important wickets. Thurstonland is not a club to focus solely upon their senior section however and this is reflected by the fact that they also have a number of youth sides in place. These teams look to provide youngsters from the local area with an opportunity to play the game in a safe and enjoyable environment whilst helping them to reach their full potential. It is important for any club to be able to produce their own talent, particularly in the current financial climate and this is an area that they appear to have covered. It will certainly be exciting to see how their juniors can progress in the coming years. In order to help ensure that these players enjoy a smooth transition into the senior game Thurstonland also runs a 2nd XI. This allows them to give players experience of adult level cricket even if they are not yet considered ready for first team action which can be an important step in the development process. Another benefit of having an extra side is that it allows the first XI to benefit from far greater strength in depth. If they are ever left short on numbers through injury or work commitments they have the option of calling up replacements with a limited amount of disruption. Although Thurstonland CC has a rich history they are clearly not living in the past and continue to thrive thanks to their forward thinking and progressive nature. This should ensure that there is plenty of excitement to come in their future.
