Sporty Greatwood Primary School youngsters get the chance to shine
8:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
Youngsters at Greatwood Primary School have proved shining stars on the sports field.
They have been taking part in Yorkshire Cricket Club’s Chance to Shine Programme, designed to promote cricket in state schools.
About 60 year five and six pupils enjoyed eight weeks of coaching from YCC representative Ben Holderness.
And the work has paid off - the youngsters were runners-up in a recent primary school cricket tournament.
“It certainly helped us,” said teaching assistant Anita Hoggarth. “The children very much enjoyed the coaching.”
