Bowling machine to get good use this summer

The Bradninch Under-17 squad are set to benefit from the presence of a bowling machine from 5pm to 6pm each Friday evening once the outdoor nets kick in. The club’s Under-17 skipper Will Birley says:

“Friday nights are set to be cricket all the way once we get going. With our coach Steve Rowe we’ll have an hour with the machine before the younger colts get their coaching with Steve and Dave Bunker and I’ll also be helping with that coaching before, from 7pm to 8pm we are going to have in-depth sessions with the squad and even then Dave (Bunker) has said he’ll happily then stick around to work on individual issues and areas for improvement. It’s all very exciting and I personally cannot wait for then new season to begin.”
