Lords Taverners Premier Competition
Wests fields a team in the Lord’s Taverners U16 Premier youth boys competition run by Queensland Cricket. The club will field a team in the MSW U17 Open competition. Our Taverners and U17 open teams train as a combined squad.
The Lord’s Taverners competition operates under Premier Cricket standards. This competition provides a clear pathway for players between junior community cricket and senior premier grade competitions. The U17 Open competition will be run under MSW rules and is intended to provide a strong second-tier competition for boys not playing in the Taverner’s competition but who have a desire to continue their cricket development and progress to senior competitive cricket.

Aspiring Lords Taverners Players
Wests policy is to provide its members with the training and support needed to enable them to realise their full potential. Our goal is to develop the cricketing skill of young club members so they successfully transition from junior cricket to the Lords Taverners youth team, and continue on to men’s premier grade competition.
Prior to the selection of the team for each season (which usually occurs in early August), Wests convenes a series of practice sessions and selection trails and matches. All aspiring young cricketers (who meet the age criteria) are welcome to participate in this training and selection process.
