Updated: Mar 6
At last week's County Championship clash between Middlesex and Glamorgan, the Seaxe Club presented the Club with a cheque for £6,000 to provide bursary placements for young cricketers to take part in All-Stars and Dynamos cricket programmes.
On hand at Lord's during the lunch interval on day three, were Seaxe Club senior representatives Glen Birkwood and Peter Jackson, who presented the cheque to Middlesex's Interim Director of Participation and Safeguarding, Josh Knappett.
Seaxe Club have for many years, supported Middlesex Cricket with bursaries and donations to support youth cricket within the county, and in the past have made donations to help the likes of David Nash, Nick Compton, Paul Weekes, Andrew Strauss, Toby Roland-Jones, and many others young cricketers in the early stages of their journeys in the game to travel overseas to broaden their cricketing skills.
Seaxe Club's donation will provide much needed funding for children from under privileged families to take part in the ECB's national entry level programmes, with all-Stars cricket providing programmes for youngsters aged between 5 and 8 years of age and Dynamos for youngsters aged 9 to 12.
