AE Sports Academy Cricket Camps

Two October Cricket Camps were held recently as part of the Annandale and Eskdale Sports Academy. They were run by the new DG Community Cricket Coach, Chris Stewart, whose work is supported by the Rural Dumfries and Galloway LEADER Programme.

At the camp at Langholm in the Eskdale Centre 12 local youngsters were taken through the skills of fielding, bowling and batting in two 2 hour sessions which concluded with an energetic and competitive game of pairs cricket.

At the camp at Annan Academy a promising twelve registrations resulted in just four attending. However that meant individual attention and the scheduled two hour session was filled with fielding and batting and a hectic game of non-stop cricket.
