YORKSHIRE County Cricket Club has teamed up with Pro Coach and the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation to stage the region’s first 24-hour coaching event.

Held at the Yorkshire Cricket Centre, at Headingley, the event takes place on February 8 and 9 and will involve an indoor cricket competition, a Leeds Varsity tournament, Yorkshire women’s first XI training and specialist coaching among much more.

The event aims to be a celebration of the success of Yorkshire cricket as well as raising money for the development of the grassroots game.

Over the next month there will be a number of fundraising opportunities and competitions.
