Although the new season is only two weeks old, the mixture of youth and experience is showing early signs of positive things to come for Simon Bagnell and his team.
Having been the linchpin of the 1st team batting and bowling attack for more than a decade, Simon took the advice of his body and stepped down to take the helm of a 2nd team which has all the makings of a junior development team.
With five juniors playing in both opening games, interspersed with experienced senior players, the main focus is on providing a sustainable base for future Adwalton teams, building on lessons learnt from previous years.
Further guidance and experience comes with the welcome return of Paul Bennett and signing of Simon Lindsay; who are looking to continue their illustrious career by playing alongside their sons Josh and Tommy.
Both have already reached good levels of representative cricket at their age groups, however they are both settling into the team with a maturity which far exceeds their age.
WIll Cutt enjoyed a mixed season last year playing in both senior sides. With a strong focus on stability, faith has been placed in Will placing him in the no.3 Batting slot, one which it is hoped he will take to and retain for many years to come.
Yorkshire Junior Vinit Patel is the fourth under 15 to play under the new look team. Having had limited oppertunity last season due to his represenative comitments, it is hoped that Vinit can provide some quality slow spin bowling to the team, once the warm weather dries the pitches.
With many other junior players showing their worth in the junior teams, there will be no shortage of competition for places come the summer months.
A quick peek at the league table has Adwalton at the top of the league, a position which hopefully can be retained throughout the season.
