Each week our coaches identify a PLAYER OF THE WEEK from the 3,000+ children we work with, as a recognition of their talent, efforts or improvement.
This week's PLAYER OF THE WEEK Award goes to Musa from Cherry Orchard Primary School in Charlton, London Borough of Greenwich.
His concentration and effort has enabled him to make great progress, despite being new to cricket. For a beginner, his batting technique was remarkable.
