Young cricket fans proved they were a match for top cricket star Geraint Jones when he bowled them over Cliftonville Primary School.
The former England and Kent wicket keeper teamed up with Year 3 and 4 pupils for a busy day of activities.
At assembly, he answered questions from youngsters about the sport and his life. He then worked with individual classes passing on tips about basic skills like throwing and catching.
Pupils then put theory into practice as the start joined them for a game.
Deputy head teacher Claire Whichcord said: “All the children had a great deal of fun. He kindly donated a signed bat which will take pride of place in school.”
The message on the bat reads :”Get involved with sport and have FUN.”
During 2005, Geraint played a vital role at Trent Bridge where he hit 85 and shared a 177-run 6th wicket stand with Andrew Flintoff, laying the foundations for a victory which ultimately saw England reclaim the Ashes. He was awarded an MBE at the end of 2005 after his contributions to winning back the Ashes for England.
