YOUNG cricketers shared their skills with Pembrokeshire children at two primary schools during a successful three-day tour.

The Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools U13 girls’ and boys’ cricket teams delivered fun and engaging outreach coaching to children at Narberth Community Primary School and Stepaside Community Primary School, respectively.

The boys and girls from Monmouth taught batting, bowling, fielding and catching skills - and proved a big hit with the Pembrokeshire schoolchildren.

The tour party was based at St Davids and the coaching sessions, which built up new friendships, were among the many highlights of the trip, which included fixtures against representative sides.

The U13 pupils at Monmouth School for Boys opened the tour against Cricket Wales South U13 Performance at Port Talbot; played Cricket Wales West U13 at Kilgetty and then met Cricket Wales South U13 Development at Margam.

The Monmouth School for Girls team had a wash-out in their opening fixture against Cricket Wales South Girls at Briton Ferry but then played Cricket Wales West Girls at Narberth and met Cricket Wales South U12 Boys Development at Tata Steel Cricket Club.

It was the first time that girls and boys from Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools had travelled to West Wales together for a cricket tour, but it promises to the first of many.
