A warm welcome to the Bramleys Halifax Junior Cricket League’s new website

The league has over 80 club sides, with teams competing at U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17 age groups.

We are working to develop junior cricket across the Calderdale, Bradford and Huddersfield areas where our clubs play and are committed to working with the Yorkshire County Cricket Board and their representatives in this endeavour.

We are working in partnership with The Cricket Asylum as our official training partners, who offer not just fantastic coaching but wonderful facilities for the children of our region to access.

Finally a thank you to current, old and prospective sponsors. Without you we would be unable to effect the changes we feel the league needs to improve participation.

We hope you enjoy the look and feel of the website. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to provide feedback to the e-mail at the top of the homepage.
