On the 11th April 2019 we held a Taster Day for both old and new members of the youth section. We had a FANTASTIC turn out with 32 children (ranging from the age of 5 to 15) coming out on a very cold spring day to either practice or try out new cricket skills. Due to it being a long time since any other children may have touched a cricket ball, we started the day off with some basic ball skills (throwing, catching and long barriers). We then moved on to some bowling practice playing games such as sin bin to practice bowling at a target. With the last activities before lunch being batting based with the older ones having a net and the younger ones playing a favourite Diamond Cricket
