Somerset star Steve Kirby gives youngsters cricket lessons
3:00pm Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
SOMERSET star Steve Kirby has been helping youngsters learn cricket skills.
He was joined by youth development coach Andy Fairburn to pass on tips about cage cricket at Viridor Green.
It was part of the Halcon Supported Sports project, which has seen the Halcon One Team joining forces with local businesses and sports clubs to take sport into the heart of the ward.
More than 40 youngsters have attended each session since they began in July following successful tag rugby sessions earlier in the year.
Sgt Andy Murphy said: “It’s fantastic watching these children being given a chance and to see sport breaking down the barriers and nurturing a real team spirit.”
