Kids on the ball

A NORTH Northumberland cricket club will be running indoor sessions for budding youngsters over the next six weeks.

Alnwick Cricket Club will run three different weekly sessions for children of different ages.

The Under 9s (Year 4 and below) will play from 5pm to 6pm on Tuesdays at Lindisfarne Sports Centre.

On Wednesdays between 7pm and 8pm, Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre will host the Under 11s and Under 13s (Year 5 to 8).

And the Under 15s (Year 8 and 9) will meet straight afterwards on Wednesdays, from 8pm to 9pm, also at Willowburn.

The sessions are run by ECB-qualified coaches and will offer a mix of coaching, skills and games.

Sessions are age-group-based and will cater for all abilities. All equipment is provided.

Everyone is welcome – players old and new or anyone wanting to try cricket is invited to turn up at one of the sessions and give it a go.

Sessions cost £2. For more information, contact junior organiser Steve Kelly on or 07767 346126.
