Lancashire Cricket Club set for sixth annual Schools Open Day
1,400 school children to attend Emirates Old Trafford
Lancashire Cricket Club are set to welcome 1,400 children from around the County through the gates of Emirates Old Trafford on Wednesday, for Day Three of the Specsavers County Championship match against Hampshire.
The Club’s annual Schools Open Day, run by the Lancashire Cricket Foundation, is now in its sixth year - with primary school children and their teachers invited to enjoy the experience of First Class cricket inside an international stadium.
A specially created activity zone will be in place at Emirates Old Trafford, while the event is also being supported by uniformed services with the Police, RAF and the Fire Service providing vehicles and entertainment.
Pupils from All Saints, Stockport, Newall Green and Wythenshawe Primary School will have the opportunity to kick off the day’s play by performing a guard of honour to welcome the Lancashire side out onto the pitch.
The event will also be covered live by BBC Radio Manchester’s Mike Sweeney, who will be broadcasting from the UA92 Players and Media Centre at Emirates Old Trafford between 9am – 12pm.
Sandy Mitchell, Lancashire Cricket Foundation Director, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming schools to Emirates Old Trafford on Wednesday, for our sixth year of this annual mass participation event.
“The day will combine the on-field cricket action 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.”
