Police officers teamed up with Atherton Cricket Club to improve relationships further with local youngsters and encourage good behaviour.
Local Community Police Officers recently visited the club to play its under-17s in a 25-over friendly match which the home team won by a slender 17 runs.
PC Mark Sumner, who helped organise the match, said: “It’s all about breaking down the barriers with young people, showing the that as Police Officers we are there to help and are approachable.
“This has been a great community event and played in great spirit.”
Sainsbury’s kindly provided free refreshments.
