Young Hunwick cricketers look the part thanks to Hays Travel jackets

YOUNG cricketers are dressed to impress thanks to a travel agent.
Hays Travel in Crook has bought new jackets for Hunwick Cricket Club’s Under 11s team as part of a sponsorship deal.
Kassandra Wallace from the Crook branch of Hays Travel said: “We have supported other local sports teams in the past but this is the first time we have done it for Hunwick Cricket Club.
“We thought supporting the Under 11s was a worthy cause.”
Ms Wallace and colleague Kayleigh Formosa presented the navy jackets to the squad last week.
John Pratt from Hunwick Cricket Club, said: “They are smart jackets and the lads really look the part now which helps with their confidence.”
The youngsters play in the Durham Cricket Board Junior League South West Under 11 League and are also entered in the Roy Coates Memorial Trophy.
Hunwick Cricket Club also has an under 13 side as well as the first and second teams playing in the adult leagues.

Hays Travel is based on Hope Street in Crook.
