Saxonby Beacon CC summer camp 1 70

A recent summer camp for aspiring young cricketers has been heralded as a huge success.

The event, organised through Beacon Cricket Club and sponsored by Shrewsbury based construction company Saxonby, took place at the town’s Frankwell cricket ground. Planning started in October last year with 63 six to 13 years olds registered by the beginning of the week-long camp.

Aside from a daily cricket match complementary activities delivered by Simon Evitts from Embrace PE included end zone (similar to netball), rocket ball (a combination of dodge ball and lacrosse), tag rugby and tri golf, with each discipline helping to develop communication, team building, send-and-receive and hand-eye skills. Youngsters also enjoyed canoeing on the River Severn and a trip on the Sabrina Boat.

Parents were invited to join an open evening on the last day where refreshments were provided. Following the presentation of medals and awards to the summer camp attendees and everyone participated in cricket and rounders matches. The new Frankwell ground cricket nets facility was also officially opened by Cllr Alan Mosley, leader of Shrewsbury Town Council.

Steve Reese, club development officer at Beacon Cricket Club, said: “All this has been made possible by the fantastic support we receive from Shrewsbury Town Council and Saxonby, and without them we would not be in this superb position. It is now six years since we moved to Frankwell and it really is starting to become a well-respected facility for cricket and a great place for youngsters to be coached and play. The summer camp has been a resounding success and something we hope to repeat again next year.”

James Wood, co-founder of Saxonby, said: “Saxonby was very happy to support the summer camp organised by Beacon CC for a number of reasons, but primarily because it enabled youngsters of all abilities to enjoy sport. The commitment to the future and sustainability of Beacon CC is clear to see and Steve Reese and his team should be commended for the excellent work they continue to do. Well done everyone and roll on next year!”
