As I am sure a lot of you know that our coaches work very hard to ensure everyone at our sessions, whether it be a camp, club or private session, has fun in a safe environment. We are always keen to give back to our coaches and therefore going forward we will be treating those coaches who have gone above and beyond. Therefore, if you have a session with our coaches and feel they have done a great job then please do let us know so we can reward them in the right way!
The first of these treats happened earlier this year. Tim Doughty, our co-founder, took Henry Moore, one of our coaches to Lords for the England Vs Ireland game in the sweltering heat. They were fortunate enough to witness England’s Jack Leach score a spectacular 92 before unfortunately getting out just before achieving the feat of being the 6th ever night-watchman to score a test hundred!
After the game they were lucky enough to meet Charlotte Edwards CBE, the ex-England Captain who successfully lead the team to win the ashes and World Cup in both 20/20 and one day formats.
Henry said: “It was a great day at the test match with Tim. I think some of our cricketers could’ve done better than the England team being bowled out for 85 in the first innings!”
Tim commented on the day: “It was a pleasure to take Henry to the game and reward him for all the hard work he has put in to his coaching. It was a nice bonus to meet Charlotte Edwards too! I look forward to treating more of our coaches in the years to come”.
We look forward to sharing more stories like this in the future!
