U10s Enjoy Derbyshire Festival

Teams from Yorkshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire took part in the Derbyshire U10s Cricket Festival 2013 held at Repton School over the weekend.

 4 counties enjoy DCB U10 Festival at Repton

Established in 2010, this annual event is designed to help each player learn more about themselves, their game and how they can develop into the best player possible by giving them a taste of life as a top class cricketer both on and off the field.

For many of the young cricketers this was their first festival and as we’re great believers that the best habits start from an early age, in addition to the matches on Friday and Saturday (unfortunately the rain meant the pitches were unplayable on Sunday), they also had opportunities to improve skills in training sessions as well as taking part in workshops on strength and conditioning and the Spirit of Cricket. 

Here's a small selection of photos from the event, with kind thanks to the Sports Shots team:
