Burnham-On-Sea cricketers see world's top players in action
group of young cricketers from Burnham-On-Sea picked up tips from
some of the world's best players when they visited an international
match this week.
dozen Year 9 cricketers from Higbridge's King Alfred School visited
Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on Wednesday (12th June)
to watch Australia v New Zealand in the ICC Champions Trophy.
was a fantastic opportunity to watch international players in
action - an opportunity provided by 'Chance to Shine', an initiative
to get more young people playing cricket," the school's Peter
Harris, Teacher of PE, told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
the weather meant that the game did not finish, but the students
thoroughly enjoyed the 65 overs of top class action. It is hoped
they will have learnt something from these top professionals and
be able to put that into their future school matches!"
