On Friday evening, Oct. 6, the Youth News visited VCC during the 2023 Academy U12 training sessions led by former international Tim de Leede and his team. The reason was the World Cup in India in which the Netherlands is participating. Presenter Gijs and cameraman Rick from the Youth News filmed for nearly 2 hours. Several children were interviewed about the sport and the different positions you can play during the match. For example, James van Achterberg of HCC, Irteza Anwar of HBS and Alex Oosterheert of VCC told something about the game and their passion for cricket. After the interviews, the boys were able to show off their skills. HCC’s Adeline Domela also talked about how cool it was to play cricket. Proud father Tim de Leede also expressed how improbably clever it was that the Netherlands, including his son Bas, made it to the World Cup.
