3rd XI Cricket
The GKTCC 3rd XI is a newly established team which has come to fruition as a result of the rapid expansion of the club. The 3rd XI provides an opportunity for our lesser experienced members to develop their cricketing abilities whilst also acting as a stepping stone to GKTCC’s 2nd and 1st XI. Our main aim is to give as many of our members a chance to represent the club while challenging themselves by testing their abilities in competitive matches. The 3rd XI revolves around it’s key values of team spirit and development of skills on and off the pitch.
A willingness to play, dedication to training and displaying love for the game are important traits that every member of this team will have to display.
Having been founded in 2019/2020, the 3rd XI will compete in 2 tournaments in the coming year.
The 3rd XI will be competing in BUCS Division 5 against university cricket clubs in the local area. This will consist of 7 one-day fixtures against teams in our division. We have set our sights on winning this league and that is our current target for the year ahead.
LUSL Cricket gives players an opportunity to experience 5 T20 fixtures against highly prestigious teams across London. Currently the 3rd XI, lie in Division 1 with aims of being promoted to the Premier League to join the 1st and 2nd XI.
