This year the Seaxe Club is celebrating 50 years of supporting Middlesex County Cricket Club in all it wants to achieve. Over the years they have helped young players like David Nash, Nick Compton, Paul Weekes, Andrew Strauss and others to travel overseas to broaden their cricketing skills.
In their golden year, Seaxe wanted to choose a cause for a special donation and they have chosen to provide bursaries to three hundred 5-8 year olds from disadvantaged and low-income families, enabling them to access the All Star Cricket programme in Middlesex.
Without this generous support,
these children would not be able to take part in this national entry level
programme for the game. Middlesex Cricket sincerely thanks the Seaxe Club for
their continued support and together, creating more opportunities for more
young people to access cricket.
The presentation party is Seaxe President, Alan Ashton, Deputy Chairman Les Rowland, Club Treasurer, Peter Jackson and Secretary Elaine Knight who are presenting a cheque to Katie Berry, Middlesex Cricket Director of Participation & Safeguarding, with Middlesex President John Emburey also in attendance.
