Huddersfield New College’s Cricket Academy will be playing their first ever cricket game under floodlight against Queen Ethelburga's College on the 6th April 2017.
Most of the College’s Academy players have never had the opportunity to play under floodlights before, or play with a white cricket ball, and so are really looking forward to the experience, even though they could still be playing for the College at 11pm!
Peter Lombard, the Academy’s Coach, commented “I think it’s fantastic that the cricket players who come to Huddersfield New College are provided with the opportunity to play cricket in a variety of ways: full games, 20/20 and now floodlit cricket.
It will be a tough game against Queen Ethelburga’s.”
Good luck, guys!
