Head Coach Peter Moores and Assistant Coach Paul Franks were among those to lead an action-packed Junior Outlaws coaching event on a sunny Trent Bridge outfield this morning.
T20 overseas players Dan Christian and Ish Sodhi, together with bowlers Luke Wood and Jack Blatherwick, were also on hand to give out hints and tips to almost 50 youngsters, who practised their batting, bowling and fielding skills.
A mock press conference gave Junior Outlaws the chance to put a range of questions to the players and management.
They ranged from ‘What’s your favourite video game?’ and ‘Who will win the football World Cup?’ to ‘What tips would you give to young players?’ and ‘Who was you idol growing up?’
There was also the opportunity for youngsters to meet the Outlaws’ mascot, Nuts the Squirrel, collect autographs and have pictures taken with their heroes.
Overseas player Sodhi said: “It’s great to see so many children enjoying their cricket out here at Trent Bridge in the great weather we’ve been having.
“They were all having lots of fun and there looked to be plenty of talented, young players and a few budding leg-spinners, which was great to see as one myself.”
All children went home with a Trent Bridge goody bag, which included England v India Test tickets, while all get a free Family Ticket for the T20 match with Durham Jets later this month.
The session was free to all those signed up to be Junior Outlaws members. You can secure a junior Membership at £28 for the 2018 season here.
