Marshalls Cricket Club have started the new year on the front foot with a new initiative in conjunction with Retford cricket store Batting 4 6, .
They are offering a unique six-week coaching programmes to local schools, after picking up on a lack of junior cricket in Gainsborough.
The new programme will see some of the most qualified ECB accredited coaches, supplied through Batting 4 6, and the hope is that many of the school kids will take up the sport and bolster the junior section at Marshalls.
Marshalls began the programme four weeks ago at local school Hillcrest Early Years Academy and spent the afternoon sessions teaching the youngsters the basic cricket skills.
Those basics will be developed over the weeks, leading up to a match towards the end of the programme.
Any Schools interested in introducing cricket programmes through this new project are asked to contact Martyn Snell on firstname.lastname@example.org or Michelle Shevill at Batting 4 6 on 01777 322 012.
Marshalls are also inviting all children under 11 who want to learn cricket to join theirweekly coaching sessions, starting on 4th March at 6.30pm, at Trent Valley Academy.
