Eight boys from the Under 10’s kwik cricket section of Syston Town cricket club took part in the 6th Thrussington fun run to raise funds for their club. The event took place on Saturday 3rd March in Thrussington and the boys had to cover the three quarter mile circuit whilst negotiating monster hay bales and water crossings.

They all thoroughly enjoyed it and between them they raised over £200, of which Matthew Evans individually raised £61. He was awarded a £20 gift voucher to use at Talent Cricket in Loughborough to kit himself out for the coming season.

The kwik cricket section have a thriving group of children from age seven to ten years. If your child is interested in having a go at cricket, then come along to one of our training sessions on a Wednesday night. The outdoor training began on Wednesday 11th April from 6.00pm to 7.30pm at our Potters Lane ground.
