Junior Assistant Vice Principal / Assistant Director of Maths
I am an ECB Level II coach who has been coaching in schools and clubs for 20 years. I have coached players in Durham County age group teams for the Durham Cricket Board. I have introduced numerous players to the game from the start of their secondary schooling, who have gone on to represent County age group sides and the Durham Cricket Academy. A huge number of players who were introduced to the game, initially through my coaching, still represent clubs at various levels throughout the North East. I currently represent a local club where I am 2nd XI captain. I am also involved in the administrative side of the game through my work as Durham County Schools’ Cricket Association Competitions Secretary and North East Premier League Junior Competitions Secretary.
Since joining Castle View Enterprise Academy in 2011 I have been heavily involved in the delivery of our outstanding cricket provision. I am an ECB Level II coach and I have recently completed three specialist courses which focus on, video analysis, new coaching techniques and team management. As well as playing first team cricket in the North East Premier League (NEPL) I am also a member of the NEPL management committee where I chair the Junior Committee. Outside of playing and administrating, I actively coach in Castle View Cricket Academy, as well as at a local club. During the winter months I am also employed by Durham Cricket Board on a casual basis to assist with the delivery of coaching to junior county players.
