Summer Training Begins: April 4th

1 year ago By David Hinchliffe

New cricket coaching team to deliver new training programme at West of Scotland.

“Sessions will run come rain or shine.”

On April 4th 2017 McCrea West of Scotland begin the summer training calendar. Sessions will run from 6pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout the cricket season.

Junior training begins 6pm on Monday 17th April for players aged 13 and under, Friday evenings are dedicated to players in the Under 16 age group.

This year, the sessions are organised by Head Coach, David Hinchliffe alongside the coaching team of Ian Young, Dave McNulty and Mike Ashworth (Development Captain). New Chairman, Colin Mair, is also set to bring his vast experience to junior players. Further additions to the coaching team are set to be announced later.

Sessions will run come rain or shine. In the rare occasion of poor weather conditions, the indoor nets at West will be used.

David Hinchliffe, talking about West's readiness for the 2017 campaign, said,

"The McCrea West of Scotland and Partick squads are looking strong again this year. Players have been working harder than ever this winter and are looking forward to the increased competition for places from an influx of new members who play a high standard of cricket.

"This year we can provide cricket facilities every day of the week to everyone keen to practice and play our great summer sport."

Development Captain, Mike Ashworth was keen to add that his focus is on developing cricketers of all ages.

"We are lucky at West to have a great community element. Players keen to try the game from six year olds up to adult learners have the chance to play, learn and improve. With the 2017 coaching setup, we can better serve every level of player at training and have games throughout the summer for developing talents."
