Meet 14 year old Jimmy: a Cheddar resident, a member of Kings Fitness & Leisure, and a County Cricket representative for Somerset!
Kings Fitness support Jimmy, and in the coming months we will be following his progress in his mission to keep developing, and to reach the pinnacle of his sport.
After a successful season with the County last year Jimmy has been re selected for Somerset County Cricket Club at Under 14 level this summer. In recognition of his progress Jimmy has been chosen to attend the “Somerset County Fast Bowling Programme”. This involves weekly training sessions at the County Ground Centre of Excellence in Taunton during the winter months working with the County’s lead bowling coach and 1st team Strength and Conditioning specialist on a one to one basis. Jimmy also trains with the rest of the squad every fortnight and will be representing Somerset this summer in the National Competition for his age group.
Jimmy also plays for his local Cheddar Cricket Club where he captains the Under 15’s and also broke into Cheddar’s senior 1st team last season. If Jimmy’s story has inspired you, your child, or made you wonder how to get involved in Cricket, search “cheddar cricket club juniors” on facebook!
