A new South Devon cricket school run for the first in the summer has proved so popular it is to be launched as an academy during the winter.

The Riviera Winter Cricket Academy is starting in the New Year with Saturday morning sessions at Torquay Academy.

It began with summer camps at Barton Cricket Club next door in Cricketfield Road.

The winter sessions will run from Saturday January 8 to Saturday April 28 - 5 to 10 year olds(9am to 10am); 11-16 year olds(10am to 12noon).

They will be run by ECB-qualified coaches offering 'high level coaching, unlimited fun and masterclasses from current and Ex professionals.'

Former Somerset legend and England star Marcus Trescothick dropped in on one of the sessions during the summer camp.
