We have started a new cricket after school club this week in partnership with Warwickshire County Club. Led by Andy, our coach, the children enthusiatically practiced their batting skills this week whilst also demonstrating some fantastic fielding – Matteo, in particular, dived full length to stop a ball from reaching the boundary!
Our girls were thrilled to have Kerys from Birmingham City Ladies FC come to coach them this week as part of our ‘Sister Club’ affiliation. The girls really enjoyed the session and can’t wait for the next one!
