Sport For Life
Durham's young fast bowling star Ian Hunter will sign up for Sport For Life and submit himself to flexibility, blood pressure and lung capacity tests.

Durham Cricket Club and Middlesbrough College are launching the Sport For Life programme which is a nationally recognised qualification known as the Foundation Studies.

The programme is free to join and Durham coach Martyn Moxon says: It is widely accepted that cricket and fitness go hand in hand - the stronger, fitter and faster the players the more chance that games will be won and not lost. The same applies in every walk of life and we are delighted to be able to use our sportsmen and their training methods as examples to students."

Anyone interested in joining the Sport For Life programme can telephone the club on 0191 3871717 for an application form.
