Alex Wakely opens School’s new Play Area.


Northants Cricket vice captain Alex Wakely visited Yardley Hastings Primary School yesterday, and the batsman officially opened the school’s brand new play area.

The latest of a string of community visits by Steelbacks players, Alex spoke to the pupils of Yardley Hastings School about the importance of sport and exercise for leading healthy lives – before cutting the ribbon on the brand new all-weather climbing trail.

Alex also delivered application forms for Free Junior Memberships and Steelbacks flags to the excited youngsters.

2013 will see all Steelbacks players visit a school or community group at least once as Northants Cricket strives to become a focal point in the local community.
