The day Hampshire came to Sway !

 

Sway CC Enjoy 'Fantastic' Hampshire Visit

James Vince, Liam Dawson, Tom Barber and Lewis McManus all visited June's Club of the Month.

Hampshire Cricket’s brand new initiative for 2015 aimed at offering support for recreational club cricket across the county was again a key focus as Sway Cricket Club received a special visit.

Limited overs captain James Vince, all-rounder Liam Dawson, seamer Tom Barber and wicket-keeper batsman Lewis McManus were all on hand to offer key coaching tips to some of the club’s aspiring young cricketers, as well as signing autographs and posing for selfies as part of Hampshire’s Club of the Month Scheme.

 

‘It’s great to be able to have the chance to come and be part of evenings like these that can really make a difference. From what I’ve seen, it seems like a brilliant set-up here and there’s some really good talent that it’s also nice to be able to offer that support to help club’s progress through scheme’s like this one.’

There was a fantastic turnout by youngsters and not so young alike and as well as the coaching stations with the Hampshire players, there was music, food, refreshments and a game out in the middle between Sway Ladies and the U11s.
