On Wednesday 25th March 2015 over 60 pupils from Parkhall Integrated College and Antrim Grammar attended a ‘Know the Laws of Cricket’ event hosted by officials from Muckamore CC.
Local Northern Ireland Association of Umpires & Scorers (NIACUS) officials Alan Neil and Andy Kennedy spent a harmonious 2 hours explaining the fundamentals of scoring and umpiring. The local Club also invited 15 of their senior players who needed to refresh and brush up in the laws and everyone who attended left with learning something new.
The Club would like to thank Mr Martin (Parkhall Integrated College) and Mr Baguley (Antrim Grammar) for helping to facilitate and participate in a fun afternoon of learning.
Charles Henderson who was the driving force behind the innovative session commented that unless we promote the Laws of cricket to generate knowledge of the game we all love then how can we really understand and expect beginners to become involved.
The club hopes that they will introduce a few more budding scorers, umpires or players to cricket by making this subject fun.
