Thirty youngsters take part in junior cricket coaching session in Uckfield

About 30 youngsters took part in the first in a series of weekly junior coaching sessions being organised by Uckfield Anderida Cricket Club.

They met at the Victoria Pleasure Ground yesterday and were split into two age groups for the fun session. The aim was for the children to learn new skills, work as a team and keep active.

A group of older youngsters taking part in junior coaching sessions organised by Uckfield Anderida club at the Victoria Pleasure Ground yesterday. With them is coach David Tungate.

Their parents were able to make themselves tea and coffee in the club house as they watched.

Anderida chairman Paul Iswariah told the adults they were welcome to get involved in the sessions and that funds were available to cover the cost of them going on coaching courses if that was of interest.

Pay and Play

The next junior coaching session will be held on Saturday, June 11, from 10.30am to noon. They are run on a ‘pay and play’ basis so parents aren’t tied in and youngsters don’t need to attend every week.

Quiz night

Teams of eight are invited to take part. There will be a barbecue and entry is £10 a head.
