The first of a new season of Bradninch Cricket Club workshops in a local school took place on Tuesday and, if day one is anything to go by, this is set to become one of the most successful events in the club’s history!
Natalie Hunt (who else?) was the driving force and she attended Duchy Primary School in Bradninch to take an ECB supported coaching afternoon with the pupils.
There’s now set to be a similar session launched at Broadclyst Primary School which Natalie, supported by Devon Crick Boards’ Matt Cooke, has made a presentation too, prior to launching a series of cricket coaching and workshops.
This really is such a positive step forward for the club.
“The first session at The Duchy school, where I was supported throughout the afternoon by Liam Reed and (after his own school day was finished), Vinny, was all-consuming and I was exhausted come the end of the final session.
What that leaves me thinking is that ANY help I can get from club cricketers for future sessions will be most gratefully received.”
As for the visit to Broadclyst Primary School, Natalie said:
“I went to do a presentation to the school with Matt Cooke and have to say the reception we got from children and teachers was wonderful. We clearly have an opportunity now, through the club, to engage a large number of young cricketers and, who knows, find the BCC players of the future in the process.”
Natalie, everyone connected with the club salutes you – WELL DONE NAT
