Welton & Dunholme Cricket Club


Sun, rain…and cricket – a quintessential summer of British sport continues in the village

Scores of young cricketers have been braving the mixed weather conditions with smiles on their faces – and fun at the crease.

Welton and Dunholme Cricket Club welcomes youngsters of all ages and abilities – from those wanting to keep fit and learn new sports, to those who want to quench their thirst for competition in match play.

Coaching takes place on Thursdays (Under 10s upwards) and Fridays (under 9s and below). By the time of going to press, an eight-week course of cricket known as All Stars  - for the minis - would be nearing completion too.

Recently the club had some great news with funding of a new batting cage from West Lindsay District Councillors and Jump Inc – essential for the older kids who like to smash the ball a bit harder! (see photo). Massive thanks from the club.

The club is always looking for new volunteers. For more details on the club go to


Community Netball 

Netball Update


Following the report in last month’s News, William Farr Yr 9 pupils, Sophie Hotchkin, Mia Sherry and Lily Armstrong played for Lincoln City Netball Club against some strong tough opposition in the Clubs U14s National Finals at EIS Sheffield on 25th/26th may finishing in 17th place – well done girls, an experience to remember!

LCNC U14s dominated the East Mids region this season since qualifying for the East Mids regional league in June 2023, however credit must be given to the girls and coaches from Charnwood NC, who have spent the year closing the gap, going into the National finals as East Mids runners up and finishing in16th place. Overall winners were Leeds Athletic NC with Kingsway Power NC 2nd.


There was some great news for men’s/boys netball in Lincs with the recently announced line-ups for the England Trailblazers (men’s England Youth squads). Jay and Toby Herbert from Scunthorpe who have played at Brigg NC for approx. 18 months and train with the Aspire Elite Netball performance academy have been selected into the U19/U23 squads. Any boys wishing to pursue netball post U11 age group should contact Vanessa McErlain-Naylor 07836 598027 as this is the nearest Club accepting male members.


Congratulations to the youngsters from the Dunholme & Welton Community netball group, who recently took on a mixed age squad of new players from Brigg NC and took the win 28-26.

Emilija Duncanson, Imogen Fragle, Honey Bell, Ellie-Eve Cook-Bell, Amilia Viscomi, Fleur Patrick, Emily Richardson, Arabella and Amelia relished the opportunity and are looking forward to the re-match


Performance academy trials for Loughborough Lightning U14/u16 hubs for next season were held on June 8th/9th
