This week we were very fortunate to have coaches Chris Brown and Phil Hudson on Island, looking into our elite program.
Chris, who used to play for Lancashire and Glamorgan is currently a coach for Norfolk and Nottinghamshire, as well as a spin consultant for the ECB.
He spends a lot of time travelling to first class counties to talent spot their spinners so having him here was an amazing opportunity for us!
Chris gave our spinners some great technical advice as well as drills to help continue their development. We are proud to say that he spotted some talented players who with hard work he thinks could have great potential.
Phil is currently working with both Sussex CCC and the MCC YCs. Having previously worked for ICC Europe, he has a lot of experience in Associate cricket.
Phil spent time getting to know our seam bowlers as well as talking to the players about one day cricket. He also evaluated the pathways and gave us some great advice on how to further improve our development program.
All in all it’s been a great week for Guernsey cricket. Having both Chris and Phil here sharing their knowledge and experience has added amazing value to our program and players alike! We will hopefully see them soon!
