Debbie went with Severn View Primary Academy to the Cheltenham Cricket Festival to watch Gloucestershire take on Derbyshire. The tickets were kindly provided by Gloucestershire Cricket Board and as well as watching the cricket there was a whole range of activities to keep the children occupied. From tips on catching techniques on the outfield during the lunch break to seeing how fast they can bowl, plus an activity pack the children had a full day of cricket
"There is one thing I learned, and that is I will never make a bowler"
said Debbie, after her try on the bowling speed game. A score of 25.8 mph, does not look good against the average fast bowler who bowls in excess of 85mph or even a spinner of 50 mph
