Knowle DGE Visits Gloucestershire County Cricket Club

This week, a group of students from Bristol WORKS partner school, Knowle DGE, visited The Brightside Ground in Bristol to learn about the variety of jobs available at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club.

The group got a tour of the ground, meeting different employees along the way. The students spoke with the club’s Gym Manager and the Head Chef taking advice on their careers and pathways.

The group also got to see some brilliant views when visiting the top of the Bristol Pavilion and got a rare peak at areas that members of the public rarely get the chance to see – such as the Players Dining Room.

The Knowle DGE students enjoyed the tour and the discussions about many different careers. They even got to see a player in training and asked many questions along the way.


Pete Lamb, who organised the visit from Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, said:

“I would love for the group to come back at some point this summer to see a game of Cricket, and see some of the other jobs in action at the ground.”

A huge thanks to the club for making the trip happen!
