(E) European 'Spirit of Cricket' Weekend in Croatia
EDO visits Croatia & Slovenia8 March 2002 http://www-uk.cricket.org/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/CRICKET_NEWS/CURRENT/110076_ECC_08MAR2002.html
The EDO travelled to Zagreb on 23/24 February to conduct Croatia's first coaching course. The course was pitched at introductory level and eight people attended over the weekend. The course ran smoothly and all the participants showed some reasonable knowledge and worked hard over the two-day period.
The course itself was staged at the University in one of the many adequate sports halls. Croatia have been given their own ground on the same campus. The EDO inspected the area and recommendations were made and support granted in preparation for the start of the season and for the MCC Tour due to take place this summer.
The EDO then travelled on to Slovenia to meet with Ljubljana CC's Alasdair Green. On the Monday morning a meeting was held with the local schools' programme manager to discuss exciting plans to introduce cricket into twelve local schools.
This would be a tremendous breakthrough. The EDO also inspected the ground and pitch and, once again, support will be provided to improve the various facilities in preparation for the MCC tour. The trip was extremely worthwhile and it was extremely encouraging to see the good work that is taking place in this part of Europe.
