Lancashire and England fast bowler Sajid Mahmood was the star
attraction at this week's indoor cricket training sessions at
Bolton School. The weekly sessions, funded by the MCC
Foundation, are for local secondary school boys and are aimed at
identifying and developing young sportsmen who have yet to engage
fully with the game and have the potential to play at District
level. Twenty four boys have been nominated by their school or club
and are attending the current Sunday coaching sessions.
The two groups, an U13s group and an U15s group, were delighted
to welcome Sajid to their session and he was soon turning his arm
and dispensing advice in the School's indoor nets.
Bolton School is one of seven schools in the country
to make up a hub set up by the MCC Foundation to stimulate links
between independent schools, state schools and cricket clubs in
order to discover new cricketing talent. The sessions are run
by hub manager Andy Compton and Lancashire Cricket Board coaches
Mick Fletcher and Dave Fairbrother. The scheme will continue in to
the Spring and Summer Terms and beyond.
