Familiar faces join Junior Members for annual fun session
There were some familiar faces at today’s annual Junior Members’ Fun Session.
As part of their Membership, our Junior Members are treated to an annual free fun coaching session and this year Club Captain Marcus Trescothick, Director of Cricket Matt Maynard and Somerset all rounder Tim Groenewald were on hand to offer their expert advice.
Marcus and Matt cast their eyes over the morning session which saw the under 13′s (Stumpy’s Sloggers) put through their paces whilst Tim attended the afternoon session to give tips and advice to the under 19′s (Wyverns).
Marcus was impressed to see so many youngsters in the Centre of Excellence for today’s sessions. “It was great to see so many young cricketers here this morning,” he said. “They were all keen to learn and hopefully they will take something away from today that will make them better players. These sort of events are what it’s all about. Seeing these kids having such a great time with the bat or the ball in their hands is just what you want to see because these guys are the future. As a Club we feel it’s vital to provide as many benefits to our young Members as we can. I look forward to seeing these guys again at more events next year.”
After the session Matt said: “It’s been a brilliant morning. There were some good little cricketers on show today but the main thing for me was to see everyone having fun. Events like this are all about enjoying yourself and everyone certainly did that. Our Junior Members are a really important element of this Club and I’m looking forward to what we’ve got planned in 2016.”
There are numerous benefits for our Junior Members and the annual Coaching Fun Session is just one of them. There are a number of exclusive offers and events as well as a a signed birthday card and a free gift!
