Street Sixes Success for HoWZAT

 

Heart of Worcestershire College’s cricket team HoWZAT were bowled over with success this summer as they took the Worcester Street Sixes title for 2017.

Expertly managed by team captain Chris Ridings, the team remained undefeated throughout the entire tournament and were graciously handed the title by England cricket legend Mike Gatting.

Speaking about the team’s success, team captain Chris Ridings, said:

“I am extremely proud to have led the team to success. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed participating in the competition and to walk away with the title was an added bonus.”

The event, sponsored by the Worcestershire Ambassadors, raised £6496 for the Worcestershire street cricket programme which engages young people through cricket and then educates them by helping them write CVs, improve interview techniques as well as train them to deliver and sustain the street cricket programme itself, for other young people.
