The immensely popular Cricket Courses, sponsored by Rathbones have been expanded to cover all schools on the Island, ensuring as many children as possible have the opportunity to take part. Running now for eleven years, this initiative has proven to be hugely successful and has encouraged into the sport many new players who wouldn’t ordinarily have been attracted to cricket at this age at school. Lee Meloy, Jersey Cricket Development Manager, commented “It’s fantastic to see the increasing numbers of children taking part every year. We’re really grateful to Rathbones for helping to provide these youngsters with the first step on the pathway towards playing international cricket”.
