The Norfolk Cricket Board Youth Festival returns this summer following last year's successful event.

The five-day festival, sponsored by Gresham's School, will be held at Manor Park, Horsford and will run from August 14-18.

Norfolk clubs are invited to enter teams for U11, U13, and U15 mixed hardball competitions and softball for U10s.

'We are particularly excited to offer additional softball opportunities this year to allow more young players of all abilities to enjoy playing cricket,' said Jason Reynolds from the NCB.

Steve Adams, Gresham's Sports Development Director, added: 'The development of cricket is hugely important at Gresham's as is building relationships with local clubs so we are delighted to be sponsoring the Festival for a second year.'
