Cricket camp returning to Long Sutton

By Spalding Reporter

After its huge success last summer, the All Stars Cricket program is returning to Long Sutton.

For children aged five- to eight-years-old, the fun-packed weekly sessions aim to give youngsters their first taste of the game with an introduction to the basic skills of batting, throwing, catching, bowling and teamwork.

The eight-week course, being led by activators Andy Crisp and Georgina Synnott, starts at Long Sutton Cricket Club, Park Lane, on Wednesday, May 15, from 5pm to 6pm.

Andy, who led the sessions last year, said this year’s programme promises to be just as much fun and he is keen to welcome new faces as well as returning youngsters.

“Last year’s sessions were a great success – the idea of All Stars is all about introducing children to cricket at an early age,” said Andy.

“The focus is all on fun, so the children don’t even realise that they’re learning all these basic skills.

“We’ve got a thriving junior side here at Long Sutton with under-11, under-13 and under-15 teams and some of last years All Stars players have already progressed to training with these teams, which is great for them and for us.

“And that’s what it’s all about, getting the next generation of players into the club.”

Every child who signs up receives a special pack which includes a bat, ball, cap, and personalised T-shirt, while returning All Stars will receive a different bag and other goodies including a set of wickets.

Three free taster sessions are also being held at Long Sutton Primary School.
