Lindum's junior sides
All of the Lindum's ELEVEN junior sides play in Lincoln Youth League. The Under 13s and U15s also enter the County Cup competition, the winners of which go on to play in a National competition.
The U9s and U10s play "pairs cricket", using Kwik Cricket equipment. Their matches are usually on Sunday mornings. The U11s, U13s, U15s and U17s play "normal" cricket. Their matches are played on weekday evenings and are usually 18 overs a side, although this might be reduced because of weather conditions.
Kwik Cricket equipment is made from high-quality moulded plastic. It is light enough for small hands yet extremely tough and hard wearing. It has been designed to allow the game to be played safely on any flat surface either indoors or outdoors.
"Pairs" cricket. Each team has eight players and bats for sixteeen overs. Teams are divided into four pairs, with each pair batting for 4 overs. You start with 200 runs on the board. The batters score runs as in ordinary cricket, but each time a wicket falls eight runs are knocked off the score. You can only be out if you're bowled, caught, stumped, run out or hit your own wicket. If a wide or a no-ball is called the batting side get an extra 2 runs. Whenever a wicket falls the batters change ends. Every member of the fielding side has to bowl at least one over.
