Coaching for boys and girls begins next Thursday from 6-7 p.m. for primary school children and 7-8 p.m. for secondary school pupils.

The community orientated club, set up by local cricketing enthusiast Farouk Hussain and a team of volunteer ECB-qualified coaches, aims to encourage greater numbers of children to take up the sport by providing differentiated, fun sessions – all at no cost.

He said: “Raiders will provide more than just high quality coaching. We will deliver the whole cricketing package including age-related fixtures, festivals, visits to county and International matches, tours for the young cricketers, as well as offering a welcoming social environment.

“I’m thrilled to be back helping local children experience the positive physical, emotional and social benefits of the game.”
