23rd February - 9th March
The Uganda Spring project again had the team travelling north to continue the work started in 2012 in the towns of Lira, Gulu and Arua. And it is incredible to see the progress that has taken place here in such a short period.
Much of the credit for this must go to Grace the regional development officer for the Northern region and once again he was on hand to assist with the project as was Derrick a promising cricketer currently in the Uganda youth teams.
Many of the same schools are still involved in cricket and it was good to catch up with some old friends as well as making new ones. A total of around 2,500 youngsters received coaching on the trip as well as dozens of teachers old and new who continue to develop into coaches.
