A college has announced it will be launching a new cricket academy for young players across the borough.

Stanmore College will be opening the Stanmore cricket academy later this year with the help of Harrow Borough Cricket and the support of Middlesex County Cricket Club.

The college recently launched a golf academy and hopes to copy the success with its new scheme to give young people the chance to combine full-time academic studies with high-quality sport coaching.

It is hoped pupils will be able to benefit from joint teaching to give them a path into either sports or higher education.
