Love-Cricket Courses are overseen by our Academy Director, George Brown, Yorkshire Cricket Board’s Coach Of The Year 2014. George has a successful track record in coaching junior cricket teams, recently guiding York’s Our Lady Queen of Martyrs RC Primary School to the Asda Kwikcricket finals at Leicestershire’s Grace Road and coaching players who have gone on to represent York Taverners and North Yorkshire.

With over 30 years combined experience, all our coaches are qualified to England Cricket Board (ECB) Level 2 and DBS checked. Our coaches have included a Men’s Scotland International, a Ladies Welsh International as well as guest coaching appearances from Matthew Fisher, the England U-19’s opening bowler and current Yorkshire first team star.

Each Love-Cricket course follows a structured approach, whereby students develop a full range of core cricket skills, including batting, bowling, fielding and wicket keeping, as well as overall tactical appreciation.

“Coaching is thoroughly professional, but always fun and enjoyable, so that not only do students learn sound technique, but develop a real passion for the game”.
