Well it's been 6 years since I played Under 18 cricket and I don't follow it very closely but I know Brandon have teams at Under 11, 13, 15 and 18 level, aswell as a 3rd Team that play on Sunday's and consists mainly of youngsters to give them a taste of 45 over cricket.
I would imagine most clubs have atleast Under 13, 15 and 18's too. Etherley being one of the clubs I guess will have these sides but I couldn't tell you for definite.
Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe have their junior sides in the County League's junior competitions too.
