Thunder and Lightning On Show At Bowdon
LANCASHIRE LIGHTNING all-rounder Liam Livingstone and Lancashire Thunder’s Laura McLeod visited Bowdon Cricket Club on Thursday evening to launch the Lancashire and Thunder Roadshow.
The Thunder and Lightning Roadshow will visit over 50 local schools and junior cricket clubs in the region to encourage children and their families to visit Emirates Old Trafford for a summer of live cricket, live music and fun entertainment for all the family.
The Roadshow features the AO.com inflatable bowling game which allows participants to test their bowling technique, accuracy and speed against family and friends, the NatWest T20 Blast Trophy so families can have their pictures taken with it, plus appearances from Lancashire Lightning and Lancashire Thunder players at certain events and not to forget the country’s Number One cricket mascot Lanky Giraffe.
And Livingstone and McLeod were on hand to take part in some coaching sessions with Bowdon’s young cricketers. The rain cleared up in time for some fun cricket activity on the outfield with the youngsters each showing some promising skills.
The duo also took part in an interesting questions and answers session, hosted by former Lancashire and England wicketkeeper Warren Hegg, which gave a fascinating insight into playing cricket at the highest level.
Tickets for the NatWest T20 Blast and the internationals at Emirates Old Trafford are currently on sale and can be purchased by clicking here.
