Asda Kwik Cricket in Northern Ireland launched and ready to kick off!

By The Asda Kwik Cricket team

April 11th was an exciting day for the Campbell College students in Belfast as they received a visit from Nigel Jones, the Ireland team’s all-rounder, who conducted an exclusive coaching session and gave youngsters his best tips on how to succeed in this sport.


Born in New Zealand, Nigel left his homeland for Ireland and played his first club match for Civic Service North in 2007.  He joined the senior Ireland team before the ICC World Twenty20 in 2009.


During his visit at the beautiful Campbell College last Monday he helped launch the 2011 Asda Kwik Cricket Competition in Northern Ireland. The event ran for over an hour and Nigel was happy to pose for photographs and answer any questions kids had for him afterwards.


Nigel said: ‘After the recent success of the Ireland cricket team at the World Cup it is great to see the increased general interest in cricket which will hopefully result in further development of this sport in schools in the long term. Thanks Asda for sponsoring this competition that introduces kids to cricket. Without their support it wouldn’t be possible to promote the sport at the level that we are able to with the support of Asda.’
