Sierra Leone Sports: Kent Cricket Club train boys & girls 5-12 years

Coach Joseph Pessima addressing the kids

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Emmanuel Pessima has said that Kent Cricket Club have made an early start to the new season as the club ran a session for boys and girls between the ages of 5-12 years old as part of the club’s community grassroots development program. This is Kent CC’s contribution to the Sierra Leone Cricket Association’s scheme to increase participation in the country. The Sierra Leone Cricket Association’s Cricket Development Officer, Joseph Pessima, led the coaching session and was assisted by Kent Cricket Club coaches. According to Joseph Pessima the aim of the session was to promote cricket as fun and enjoyable. The session can be deemed a roaring success as some children were introduced to cricket for the very first time showing an increase of interest in the sport, while those who have been playing the game had a skill based session in developing their batting, fielding and bowling skills, further developing the cricketers of tomorrow’s skills to ensure that the national team is able to compete with the giants of the game in years to come. One of the boys David Allieu said the train was good and they are looking forward for more training.
