Donation for Penrice Cricket

The Rotary Club of St Austell has kindly donated £50 for the Penrice Academy U13s 20/20 Cricket entry this year.

Mr Tucker explains: “This kind donation from the Rotary club will be used for new batting gloves for the squad. The Year 8 team have improved immensely under the coaching of trainee teacher Tom Popham, who himself plays an excellent standard of cricket in North Devon. The squad trains on Mondays and Fridays after school, along with other age groups, so it often means we have 50 boys and girls out working on their skills.”

So far this season the boys have played matches against Brannel, Penair and Newquay Tretherras, and this Wednesday they travel to Truro School.

Team Captain Talan accepted the cheque from Ian Kelly from the Rotary Club, and he thanked Mr Kelly for the donation on behalf of the squad and the Academy.
