Belgian cricket given junior boost

Interest in cricket in Belgium continues to grow, with a five-day training camp finishing in Lier on Friday (July 30).
Three-hour sessions in the morning, as well as additional coaching on some afternoons, were enthusiastically received by 17 youngsters in the Belgian city.
Two organisers were ably assisted by three coaches from Cricket Belgium and Cricket Vlaanderen to give the participants a fine grounding in the game.
Friday's last day offered the children an opportunity to put their new-found skills into practice with a match in the afternoon played in front of parents and other guests.
Each player will receive a Cricket Belgium medal and T-shirt, plus copies of the 'Wat is Cricket' and 'Cricket in Belgie? Vast en zeker' flyers.
