Coaching

 

The indoor facilities at Pindar Leisure Centre and Bramcote School were used over the Winter and the outdoor nets at North Marine Road are used through the spring and summer. Thanks go to Neil Elvidge for his involvement with the junior + senior teams and the youth coaching schemes the club run.

Thanks also to all the other ECB Qualified coaches who aid training sessions through the season.

Senior practice and coaching is weekly on Wednesday nights and Juniors on Friday nights, both at North Marine Road.

The Bill Foord Cricket Coaching Scholarship Scheme has been ran for almost 20 years. This year there was a new intake of thirteen young players, joining twelve in their second year and seventeen in their third and final year. Both the second and third year groups also included new participants. Older participants who wish to continue their cricket with the Club form part of the junior squads through the spring and summer. Once again many youngsters have also been part of the representative groups at Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Scarborough and District level in various age groups.

The Club again ran an ‘Enjoy Cricket’ course with two four hour sessions. The sessions were aimed at beginners and nineteen participated on the course. As a follow up, a further course was held indoors during the Autumn when there were again nineteen participants.

The Club is grateful to Bill Foord for the funding of the scholarship scheme and to all who assist in any way with coaching.
