ORGANISERS of Wisbech Cricket Club's annual Fun Day on Saturday were bowled over by its success.
Dozens of youngsters turned up at the Harecroft Road Ground to join in some fun games and free cricket taster sessions.
Youth Development Officer Dominic Stannard said: "It was a fantastic day with lots of new people coming along we have never seen before but who read about it in the newspaper."
Dominic said there was a lot of interest from youngsters from the age of six years who can have three years coaching before they play in a team. He said: "Obviously the younger we get them the more we can work on their skills, we have some very good ones coming through.

"Wisbech is a lovely family club to belong to and if you couldn't make it to the Fun Day but still want to join then come along on Sunday April 19 and join in straight away."
It is the third year the day has been held and Dominic said Saturday's was the best yet with senior and junior members helping and parents.
