[url][/url] - bought from them before for things for my son. Very good service, quick delivery and quality products at a good price when I used them

or try


Just bought my daughter a pair of Slazenger cricket trousers from Sports Direct for £5.99. They seem ok - got to put the hem up yourself though but I suppose it's good for different sized kids. Also bought her a training cricket ball for £2.99 so didn't think it was too bad. Check out [url][/url]

thanks for all the replies

if you are near Penrith, Cumbria then SportsCraft is good, or Morrant / Romida.

Depends how much your budget is, for example I make my own bats in the UK which cost £150 (not plugging btw!). Whereas Sports Direct will offer bats as low as £10, they'll be terrible when hitting a proper leather ball but 10yr olds mainly play kwik cricket.

If this is his first season the Sports Direct and lower grade Woodworm gear from The Sports HQ will do, after a season or two it's worth looking at cricket specialists such as Owzat Cricket. There's also a number of people in the UK who run smaller brands who can offer very good value kit, Ebay is a good place to start for some of these.

If you're unsure on whether a bat is suitable feel free to PM me as I've worked for a number of cricket companies in the UK and in India so know my stuff :-D
