NEW Norfolk Cricket Club's in2CRICKET participants travelled to Bellerive last week for a clinic which was held for areas affected by last year's bushfires.
The kids, along with other groups, were treated with a cricket clinic by Australian men's and women's players Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch, Matthew Wade, Holly Ferling and Nicole Bolton.

The kids also got to ask questions and managed to get the players' autographs. A highlight was when Glenn Maxwell was set up by his team mates and had to sing a few lines from Times Like These by the Foo Fighters in front of the children. The youngsters had a great day and also got to watch the Australian men's T20 team train in the nets.

All in all the kids had a ball and would like to thank New Norfolk Cricket Club players Leigh Berry, Trent Mayne and Josh Walsh for putting on the Milo in2CRICKET sessions every week at Tynwald Park. There has been about 42 kids turning up each week and we are very proud of them all and we hope they continue on again next season.
