Woodhouse Grange 4th XI
There are very few cricket clubs that can field four teams on a Saturday, so Woodhouse Grange is immensely proud of its 4th XI. This team is usually made up of three or four older players plus a great mix of younger cricketers, and it provides a fantastic opportunity for young players to get their first taste of adult cricket.
Since switching to the York & District Senior League in 2014, the 4th XI have at times encountered some much stronger teams, but have responded with some superb victories and other heroic moments. With the realignment of some of the leagues for 2016, coupled with some fast improving youngsters, the expectation is that the 4th XI will prove to be increasingly competitive.
It is generally accepted that the guy with the toughest job at Woodhouse Grange is Steve Ainley, the 4th XI captain. Steve spends most Saturday mornings making sure he has got eleven players, but he always manages to achieve this, and it also means great opportunities for u13 and u14 players to play adult cricket.
