FUTURE superstars from Bourchier Street Primary School were treated to a special visit from the Melbourne Renegades and Cricket Victoria last week.

The students were absolutely thrilled, taking part in a skills workshop with a range of activities, which included taking diving catches on an inflatable.

The Melbourne Renegades have spent much of the last week visiting several of the schools around the region and in other rural areas, training the next generation of cricket stars and equipping them with skills in bowling, batting and fielding.

While visiting these areas, the cricketers have also bought along the 2019 Big Bash League trophy, with games set to commence in just over a month.
