Lancashire Cricket Club to host Schools Open Day

Almost 1,000 pupils and school teachers will head to Emirates Old Trafford for Day One of Lancashire’s Specsavers County Championship match against Surrey on Friday (27 April).

This will be the sixth year that the Club has held the Schools Open Day, which is run by the Lancashire Cricket Foundation, in conjunction with Lancashire Cricket Club.

Schoolchildren, aged five to eight, from across the North West are invited to watch a day of cricket action, as well as partake in a wide range of fun activities throughout the day.

The activities will be run inside the Trafford Cricket Centre within Emirates Old Trafford and will include intro to cricket sessions and an All Stars Cricket taster – the ECB’s new initiative aimed at providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket.

Pupils from Wilmslow Preparatory School will perform a guard of honour at the start of the morning session, to cheer on Liam Livingstone and the rest of the Lancashire team as they enter the pitch.

There will also be a mascot race on the pitch during the lunch break, where children can cheer on Lanky the Giraffe, who will compete against mascots from around the county.

Sandy Mitchell, Head of Community Growth for the Lancashire Cricket Foundation said, “Now in its sixth year, this annual mass participation event provides young people with the opportunity to experience first class cricket in a world class facility.

“This is combined with a range of fun, physical and educational activities that are all designed to highlight the best of everything that the Red Rose has to offer.”
