Coach Jonny Allan said it has been the best event so far: “We’ve been really lucky with the weather and have seen nearly 100 different children this week.

“There’s been an average of around 65 per day from five to 15-years-old. Everyone has really enjoyed it and hopefully it has created some interest in cricket.”
