Heywood Cricket Club
At Heywood, we think that it is important for our Club to have a set of shared values. A set of principles that run through the club from the youngest member to the oldest and with which we can be identified. Cricket is widely recognised as not just a sport or a game, but also a very positive influence for good in peoples' lives. The things that make a person valued in cricket also make them valued in life. Things like a positive attitude, hard work, honesty, fairness and a respect for others.
We have reflected upon this quite hard as we have rejuvenated our Junior Section over the last few years. We realised that we had the opportunity not just to teach the game of cricket, but also to help develop young people as individuals through the game. However, we think Heywood has always done this - it's in the history of the club and the town.
