Pendle MP bowled-over by Colne's cricket camp kids
4:32pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
PENDLE MP Andrew Stephenson was left bowled over by budding cricketers at the launch of Colne Cricket Club’s academy.
He visited The Horsfield in Keighley Road on Monday as the club hosted its first summer coaching camp, led by head coach Shadley van Shalkwyk. Club stalwarts Chris Gill and Brad Ramshead have been helping the South African professional pass on skills and advice to youngsters.
Mr Gill said: “There’s been great interest. We had 14 down today and there are a few interested parents I need to call back tonight.”
The academy was set with help from County Coun Paul White, who awarded the club a £964 local member grant in June.
The course runs each weekday from 9am to 5.15pm until August 30 for boys and girls aged eight to 16.
