LCCC Foundation supporting Lord Taverners
On the 30th April 2015 the LCCC Foundation supported the Lord Taverners regional Table Cricket Competition held at Emirates Old Trafford prestigious Indoor Cricket Centre.
The competition saw schools from Manchester and the Wirral compete against each other in what was a fun and exciting day. Each team played 2 games and the final took place between Mosslands and Chatsworth High. It was a very close and intense final with Chatsworth High coming out as the victors by 3 wickets.
Dylan Glass who works for the Lord Taverners said “I couldn’t be happier with how the day went. Those schools who took part loved the opportunity to play at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. Having access to such a great facility ensured a high quality competition. The Foundation staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. We look forward working together in the future.”
The LCCC Foundation also run its own Table Cricket Programme throughout the year as an integral part of its work to ‘Inspire Communities through Cricket’. The LCCC Foundation Table Cricket Programme provides young people with learning difficulties and disabilities from schools across the North West with coaching and competition opportunities. The programme sees school teams participating in three weeks of Table Cricket Coaching, delivered by qualified coaches, followed by a competition. The project engages young people who would otherwise have little or no contact with the sport. Through the provision of teacher training and the inclusion of LCCC player appearances the project aims to inspire the pupils and create capacity within the school to help build on the experience the project provides enabling them to continue to participate in the sport.
