The Urlings CC Junior Cricket Programme is up and running!
Due to the kit The Lord’s Taverners sent for the children Urlings CC has set up a regular Junior Cricket Practice on Fridays from 5-6.30pm for boys and girls of all ages.
All children that want to play for Urlings CC were invited to come along on Thursday afternoon to receive their cricket whites ready for the Friday practice. 15 children showed up keen to get started straight away! They were very excited to be given their own shirt and trousers, even happier to learn that they get to keep them to play in every Friday. They especially loved the long sleeves shirts.
23 boys and girls aged 5 to 12 years showed up on Friday for the first Urlings CC Junior Cricket Practice. They were coached in bowling, fielding, catching before finishing up with a game of diamond cricket using Kanga Cricket equipment donated by friends of Emma and David Yabsley, cricket fans in Australia. They played cricket until they couldn’t see the ball anymore and left jumping up and down asking if they could play tomorrow aswell!
There is a lot of positive enthusiasm at Urlings CC with all the fresh new energy and enjoyment. Long may it continue! Thank you Lord’s Taverners for your generous support, it’s already made a positive difference to many.
