The County Ground again demonstrated its versatility when it played host to Stimpson Avenue School’s sports day.
250 children, teachers and parents made the short walk from the school to enjoy a competitive morning of traditional activities such as egg and spoon, and skipping races. Headteacher Mrs. Iris McBrearty was full of praise for Northants Cricket and the special facilities and hospitality extended to her school.
Cricket Development Officer, Ian Lucas, commented “ Being part of the local community is very important for us and we enjoy a very close relationship with Stimpson Avenue. To see so many very young school children thoroughly enjoying themselves can only be good for the future of Cricket in the area.”
