More than 40 children have been putting bat to ball to improve their cricket skills.

The youngsters took part in the eighth annual coaching week, run by the Ben Rhydding Cricket Club, held in conjunction with the Ilkley Summer Festival.

Organiser Frank Taylor said the 45 children, aged seven to 13, had a great time.

“We’ve been offering advice and encou-ragement to youngsters who have played before and helping to develop their skills, and we’ve also been encouraging and helping those who have never played,” he said.
