Club To Host Schools Open Day During Next Championship Game
OVER 3,500 pupils and school teachers from over 80 primary schools in the North West will be at Emirates Old Trafford for Day Two of Lancashire’s Specsavers County Championship match against Warwickshire next week (Tuesday 21 June).
The Schools Open Day, now in its fourth year, is part of the Lancashire Way project, which is a joint initiative between Lancashire County Cricket Club, the LCCC Foundation and the Lancashire Cricket Board.
Lancashire Way aims to promote inclusivity and to raise participation levels of cricket throughout the North West.
As well as getting to watch top cricket action involving the league leaders, the schoolchildren will get to take part in a wide range of fun activities in a specially-created ‘Activity Zone’.
Also, pupils from Tyntesfield Primary School in Timperley will perform a Guard of Honour prior to the start of the morning session to cheer on captain Steven Croft and the rest of the team.
Teachers will also have the opportunity to find our more information about the LCCC Foundations’ ‘Education Without Boundaries’ programme in the AJ Bell Players & Media Centre during the lunch interval.
Sandy Mitchell, Head of Community Development for the LCCC Foundation said “Now in its fourth year this annual mass participation event provides young people with the opportunity to experience first class cricket in a world class facility combined with a range of fun, physical and educational activities all designed to highlight the best of everything the Red Rose has to offer.”
