Flicx Pitch legacy lives on in Cluj

A wonderful weekend of cricket was enjoyed by all last weekend. Nearly 20 children, mostly from the Liceul Teoretic Avram Iancu, had the benefit of hours of fun activities and games, expertly delivered by Robin Maslin of the 20Twenty Cricket Company. Not even the snow was going to ruin this event!

The weekend’s activities wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the generosity of the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, for the use of their sports hall; and to clujtoday.ro and Univers-T Hotel, for sponsoring Robin’s accommodation.
