Rolleston Juniors at Lord's!

On Saturday as guests of Yorkshire Bank five of our juniors were treated to see the YB40 final at Lords. Lucy Yates was lucky enough to be asked to be the mascot for Nottinghamshire and was seen on Sky TV as the captains tossed up before the game.

The invitation followed the very successful opportunity in July for 20 youngsters to spend an hour being coached by Alastair Cook at the Gateway Centre of Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

The scheme is all part of Yorkshire Banks on-going commitment to support grass roots community cricket with their 'Giving Bat To You' initiative.
