LCCC Schools Open Day 2014


EMIRATES OLD TRAFFORD  played host to around 2,500 schoolchildren and teachers from all over the North West on Day Three of Lancashire's LV= County Championship match against Northamptonshire (Tuesday 24 June).
The day was part of ‘The Lancashire Way’, an exciting joint project which Lancashire County Cricket Club, LCCC Foundation and the Lancashire Cricket Board are undertaking throughout 2014. All three parties are working closely together to promote inclusivity and to raise the participation levels of cricket across our region through six key initiatives.
As well as watching Lancashire take lots of Northant's wickets on their way to an emphatic win, the children also took part in a whole host of fun activities in a specially created Activity Zone which was operated by the LCCC Foundation, LCB, Indoor Cricket School, Greater Manchester Police, the Armed Forces, Salford Red Devils and Youth Discovery Ventures.
Some lucky schools also had the opportunity for a coaching session at our Indoor Cricket Centre, play cricket on the outfield with the LCB or perform the Guard of Honour welcoming the teams out to play.
Teachers also had the opportunity to find out about LCCC Foundation's 'Education without Boundaries' programme over a coffee in the AJ Bell Player and Media Centre during the lunch interval.
