Cricket camp proves popular

THIRTY-two youngsters from around the area took part in the Tynemouth Cricket Club Easter Camp recently.

The group completed a three-day course organised by club development manager Rebecca Ayton with coaches Stephen Davison and Euan Stenhouse.

The course culminated in the youngsters being assessed for their Asda Cricket Awards and ECB Proficiency Awards. Joshua Summersby and Jake Findlay completed their Gold Awards in the cricket skills section whilst Matthew Foreman completed his Second Test Award and sister Rachel the First Test Award.

Joshua Summersby and Hannah Hallam picked up the Spirit of Cricket Awards.

Tynemouth chairman Russell Perry presenting the awards praised the youngsters for their hard work. “The coaches have been really impressed with the youngsters attitude in keeping with the spirit of cricket. They have been a real credit to themselves, their parents and the schools.”

The club will be running further camps in the summer holidays. Details can be obtained from Russell Perry at the club on 07947 524204.
