Traditionally home to some of the largest estates of council housing in London, Kidbrooke was characterised by deprivation throughout the late 20th century. In recent times, the expansive Ferrier Estate was demolished to make way for the "Kidbrooke Village" development which significantly altered the area.

Each week our coaches identify a PLAYER OF THE WEEK from the 3,000+ children we work with, as a recognition of their talent, efforts or improvement.

His concentration and effort has enabled him to make great progress, despite being new to cricket. For a beginner, his batting technique was remarkable.
