Bowled over: Hillhead was one of the first clubs in Scotland to run the programme

The new series of sessions for children five to eight starts on Friday May 4.

And all those who sign up now will get a free goodie bag of cricketing kit.

The initiative from Cricket Scotland is in association with the England and Wales Cricket Board.

A spokesman for Hillhead CC said: “Hillhead was delighted to be one of the first clubs in Scotland to deliver the new All Stars programme.

“We are now looking forward to delivering more sessions during the 2018 season.

“One of aims is to get five to eight olds active and to help them have fun and develop movement & motor skills that can be used in any sport – not just cricket.

“All Stars is not just for kids but for parents to join in as much (or little) as they want.

“Some of our fiercest matches has been the end of season parents v kids – and the Kids always win!”
