JUNIOR training at Ashington Cricket Club finally got under way with a fantastic turnout of nearly 80 youngsters from ages six to 15.
Club chairman Martin Thewlis said: “Many of the players were complete beginners, others had enjoyed cricket during school sessions taken by Scott Thornton so came along to develop their skills alongside the club’s experienced and dedicated coaches and the rest were old friends from previous seasons who love the coaching programme.
“Anyone who missed the first session is welcome to come along and join – no experience is needed.
“If you are between six and 15 we’d love to see you – boys and girls welcome. Sessions are 90 minutes and start at 10am sharp each Saturday morning.
“The cost is £2, plus a registration fee of £5, and the sessions run until the last Saturday in August.”
