The academy is an initiative of the Phuket Cricket Group (PCG) to develop cricketing skills among school children in Phuket.
Mani Khongmaly, PCS southern region general manager, and her team visited some of the youngster’s in action during their Saturday morning training session at the Alan Cooke Ground (ACG).
She said “PCS, Thailand’s largest facilities management service provider (from the UK), is proud to be associated with this initiative by the PCG to encourage participation by children in a team sport such as cricket. The children really appear to be enjoying themselves.”
PCG chairman Mark Ashman said “our goal is to set up a junior league once the kids have learned the basic skills of the game.
“We are very grateful to PCS for their support and this will facilitate us greatly in being able to implement the programme in schools across Phuket.”
The youth academy training sessions are held on Saturday mornings between 9 – 11 am.
All children are welcome. For more details contact Mark Ashman at email@example.com
