At centre’s launch Cricket star - Anthony Spence

TWO budding South Tyneside cricketers enjoyed a masterclass with England ace Paul Collingwood at the opening of a North East academy that will find future stars.

Ben Reay and Anthony Spencer, of Boldon, will benefit from training, coaching and playing at the new Cricket Development Centre at Gateshead College.

Anthony, 17, said: I think the new centre is a wonderful idea and Im excited to reap the benefits when it opens in September.

The centre will run in partnership with Durham Cricket Board, the native county of Collingwood, who captained England in its 2010 World Cup victory,

All-rounder Collingwood added: The new centre is fantastic news for young individuals who are looking to continue to play cricket after leaving school.

m going to be able to study while gaining playing experience and training from a number of the region's top coaches.

The centre, at the college's multi-million pound Academy for Sport, will provide a two-year programme for 16-to-18-year-olds, including nine hours training each week from Durham County's cricket community coach, with video analysis, nutrition, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, technical and tactical training, as well as net practice.

Itâ's an fascinating move for the region, and I am in full support of the college and its passion for developing sport in the region.

There's 24 work places and members can pursue work experience with Durham Cricket Board to provide career prospects.

Lewis Pendleton, college sports academy manager, said: The opening of our centre represents another move by the college to position our academy at the forefront of sport schooling in England.

We're delighted to have Paul Collingwood on board to support us with the launch and to give the scholars an insight in to his career.
