Paul Stirling, Ireland Player of the Year for 2012, has given his support and is very excited about Belfast Cricket Academy. The Belfast native has had an exceptional season for his country and for his county side, Middlesex. He had the following message.
“Cricket across Ireland has come a long way over the last number of years and the continued success of the national side on the world stage has really impacted on numerous levels. The demand for cricket is increasing more and more with so many people from all areas taking up the sport. It is brilliant to see the great initiative that is Belfast Cricket Academy and having played alongside these guys and witness first hand what a professional setup they run, I am very excited about what it creates for kids around the greater Belfast area. With the season not to far away this will be a great opportunity to get started early, work with top quality coaches and meet some of Ireland’s top players. “
