Future Stars - Guernsey Cricket

Following the success of the Future Stars cricket programme, Ravenscroft has agreed to extend its support for a further three years.

The programme, which is for girls and boys aged from five to eight, was launched in 2008 and introduces the skills of cricket through various fun based drills. A record number of young cricketers signed up in 2020 for Ravenscroft Future Stars and through Ravenscroft's support, each child was given a Ravenscroft Future Stars bag, bat, ball, cap, water bottle and beach stumps set, specially designed by Newbery Cricket.

Ravenscroft and Guernsey Cricket has now agreed to continue the partnership for 2021, 2022 and 2023.

‘It’s obvious just how much fun the youngsters have when they are at Future Stars and we hope that by Ravenscroft continuing its support, we can encourage girls and boys to be active and healthy, learn new skills and enjoy being part of a team. The programme has already identified a number of talented youngsters who will hopefully develop a lifelong passion for cricket,’ said Robin Newbould, director of Ravenscroft.
