Keen cricket players at Ounsdale High School will now have the opportunity to practice their skills at school on a new artificial turf cricket pitch thanks to a generous grant from The Lord’s Taverners and support from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). Matthew Askin, who trains the school team and is himself a member of the England Physical Disability Cricket Squad , said ‘this is a fantastic addition to the school’s sports facilities and we look forward to welcoming visiting teams from other schools as well as cricketers from Wombourne and Himley Cricket Clubs. Christine Brown, Principal, added that the school is also grateful to Gordon Lewis of Himley Cricket Club who prepared the bid and Dave Meageen, organiser of last year’s Wombourne Games, who provided some matched funding.
Ryan Quiney and Ben Hudson show exactly why the school needs a new cricket pitch!
