Thwaites gives cricket coaching chance to women
9:54am Wednesday 15th August 2012 in Sport
BLACKBURN brewer Thwaites is giving women cricketers of all abilities the opportunity of a lifetime – the chance to win an exclusive coaching session with the county champions next month.
The brewer is offering 11 women the chance to receive a personal coaching session with a selection of Lancashire players and head coach Peter Moores at Old Trafford on August 21.
To apply women cricketers should email: email@example.com explaining why they should be selected to take part or they can enter by Tweeting Thwaites why they should be chosen via @Daniel_Thwaites with the pre-fix #coachingcomp. Deadline for entries is 5pm tomorrow.
All entrants will be judged by Thwaites’ Naomi Aspin who, as well their national account executive, is also a county cricket coach playing a prominent role in the development of the women’s game in Lancashire and the north of England.
The winners will undertake a behind-the-scenes tour of the newly renovated Old Trafford before they don their whites. Whether it is how to bowl the perfect yorker or advice on hitting a textbook cover drive, the Lancashire players and coaches will put each of the winners through their paces.
After a hard workout in the nets, the participants will be rewarded with a well-deserved glass of Thwaites Wainwright in the Red Rose Suite.
In addition each participant will also net themselves a pair of tickets to watch International Twenty20 action when England’s women host the West Indies and England’s men take on South Africa. Both matches take place as a double header at Old Trafford on September 10.
The competition, which is for adults only, is open to women cricketers of all abilities.
Lee Williams of Thwaites said: “This is a great opportunity for women cricketers of all abilities to receive some first class coaching. Thwaites is a proud supporter of cricket from the grassroots right up the county level.”
