YEAR 3 children at Holyoakes Field First School are busy preparing for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

They have been training with cricketer Sam Jones from Worcester County Cricket Club who has been running sessions at the school.

Sam has been teaching the children new skills as part of the club’s ‘All Stars’ scheme, which looks to encourage more youngsters to get involved with cricket.

A spokesperson from Holyoakes said: “It has been really good for the children to learn new skills and also refine old ones.

“It’s a great opportunity for the children to participate in a new sport and promotes the healthy, active lifestyles we encourage at Holyoakes.”
