For many people the British summertime screams cricket in the sunshine, whether you choose to participate or support from off the pitch, cricket is a sport for everyone! The Leos Juniors Cricket Club offers a safe, fun environment to inspire the next generation of young cricketers. Based in Moortown, Leos Juniors is a huge part of the community, encouraging the start of young sport stars careers. The club encourages children to take part in training and matches, a great for the children to learn new skills and make new friends.
As the Leo Juniors are such an integral part of the Moortown community, here at Manning Stainton& Fine and Country we have continued our sponsorship with the club coming into the new season. Our Moortown & Fine and Country branches headed down to watch some of the young cricketers in action, and we caught up with Mark Hudson Treasurer of the club to find out more about how the sponsorship helps the club and how you can get involved! Here’s what he has to say;
“We are delighted that Manning Stainton & Fine and Country have continued their sponsorship to our growing junior cricket side and the wider community. As we have grown from Under 9s just over 4 years ago, Manning Stainton & Fine and Country have been there supporting us meaning that we could afford to purchase training equipment and important safety equipment for the children.
We now have coverage of all age groups up to Under 15s and also run the ECB All Stars Cricket program aimed at boys and girls aged 5 - 8 years old.
Finally, this year we are also planning a Ladies team in partnership with our neighbours Alwoodley CC.
As a community club, our doors are always open to welcome anybody wanting to get into the great game of cricket. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org”
