Getting the ball rolling

CRICKET sessions for women begin next week, with the aim of forming a north Northumberland team.

Places are still available for the classes in Alnwick, which are open to females aged 15 years and over.

They take place every Wednesday, starting on January 11, for five weeks and will be held at the town’s Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

Each session costs £3.

It is hoped that a female team can be started and games against other women’s sides will follow in the summer months.

Anyone interested, or for more information, contact Rob Woods by emailing or calling 01665 511495.
