Solihull Municipal 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 looking to be successful over a sustained period of time to be able to produce their own talent. It will certainly be exciting to see how their youngsters develop over the coming years. In order to help them to make the sometimes difficult transition into the adult game they also run a reserve side. This allows them to gain experience of senior 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 players up with a limited amount of disruption. Although Solihull Municipal CC is not perhaps enjoying the season they had envisaged this should not take away from the good work that they are doing. It is this that should mean that they are able to look forwards to a bright and successful future in the years to come.
