Burley Cricket Club

Burley Cricket Club - Colts

The New Forest Cricket Association formed a colts section in 1978 and Burley fielded a side in the competition's very early days. In 2016, after a gap of many years, Burley restarted a colts section. An U13 team finished mid-table in the northern division of the New Forest League and reached the semifinal of the New Forest Cup, while an U9 team played in the Zooters competition at the Ageas Bowl.

More than 30 children have played cricket at Burley every summer since then and in 2018 the club became a centre for the ECB's new All Stars scheme, while the U10s won the Division 2 League Cup in the East Dorset League and the U15s were runners-up in Division Three.

After winning the Sports Club of the Year trophy in the 2019 New Forest Sports Awards, the club raised £2,000 and bought a bowling machine to assist with the junior section, which continues to develop and ran again in 2020 despite the pandemic.

Colts' training is on the green opposite the school and be supervised by qualified coaches. The club has close links with Burley and Sopley junior schools and new players (boys or girls) and parents are always welcome.
