Favourite part of being a coach: Working with and watching players who want to develop and improve. The daily learning opportunities in the great variety of environments I work in from schools up to elite level players.

Champagne Coaching Moment: anytime I work with players who say "they can't do".....followed by a short discussion and a bit of work who then "can do".

Coaching Qualification: UKCC Level 4

 

Ambitions for Coaching: Enjoy, learn and grow with each day so one day I may get a crack at the very highest level.

Philosophy of Coaching: Be better today than you were yesterday......

I have been fortunate to support such a broad spectrum of coaching. From each area I have drawn tremendous experience and knowledge. However, I intend to keep working, learning and growing especially having achieved accreditation on the ECB's Level 4 programme. My philosophy in coaching is to help players strive to be "better than yesterday". I believe players learn most effectively when having fun and enjoyment. This is a core principle of all "Performance Cricket" courses.
