Cricket Presentation

The U15 team of Bradley Stoke Cricket Club has received a youth team kit bag from cricketing charity The Lord’s Taverners.

The organisation provides grants of over £750,000 p.a. to encourage participation in cricket by young people. Hard ball equipment bags with enough items to equip a full team are awarded to a limited number of applicants, who must be put forward by their local cricket league.

The kit bag contains three sets of batting pads and gloves, three bats, six balls, wicket keeping pads and gloves, a set of stumps and it all comes in a professional bag with wheels for easy transport.

Andy Stovold (pictured left), Western region representative of The Lord’s Taverners, presented the kit bag to U15 team captain Lewis Wentland at the club’s Baileys Court clubhouse on Friday evening.

Bradley Stoke Mayor Mark Forsyth and Cricket Club officials Barry Radford (Junior Coordinator) and Paul Hardwick (Chairman) also attended the ceremony.

Barry Radford commented:

“This is the U15 team’s first season but we also have established U13 and U9 sides. All in all we have 55 members under the age of 18 enjoying regular cricket at Bradley Stoke CC.”
