John Skinner (1975-1982) will be one of the 8,000 torch bearers selected to carry the Olympic flame around the UK in the run-up to the London Olympics this summer. He was selected in recognition of his contribution to North Stainley junior cricket team which he began coaching in 2002 with only six children. Today the club has more than 100 children, aged between 3 and 15. John will carry the Olympic Torch through his home town of Ripon on Tuesday, June 19. OP supporters are welcome to come and cheer him on! To read more click here or here.
