Ex-England international to attend cricket coaching event
November 12, 2021

Former England international Matt Maynard will be one of the special guests in attendance for a special coaching event being hosted by Rydal Penrhos.

Rydal Penrhos has a long-standing history of cricketing success, with many pupils going on to play professionally and gain international youth honours thanks to their outstanding development. Not only this, but the school has also formed strong links with prestigious organisations such as Cricket Wales and Marylebone Cricket Club to further enhance our status.

The school’s incredible sporting facilities have regularly hosted Welsh youth cricket internationals in recent years, and a special coaching event will take place at Rydal Penrhos on Saturday 13 November in partnership with Cricket Wales and Glamorgan County Cricket Club.

The Coaching CPD Day will run from 10.00am-5.00pm and is set to cover a number of topics from the disciplines of batting, bowling, fielding and wicket-keeping to athletic development and talent identification.

Among those attending the session is Matt Maynard MBE, a former England international and Glamorgan star who has since gone on to become a successful coach.

He will be joined at the event by Rich Almond (Head of Talent Development at Glamorgan Cricket Club), Aimee Rees and Matt Thompson, who is Head of Talent Pathway at Cricket Wales.

The aim of the days are simply to provide coaches up and down the country with a refresher of technical, tactical and practical coaching content that can be applied throughout the Welsh cricketing pathway, from club level, to regional cricket and County Age Group cricket.

Coaches do not need to be a certain level of qualification to attend, and places are free of charge at each venue.

There are still a very limited number of places remaining, and anyone wishing to book their place at the event can do so online here.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to our wonderful school for what should be a fantastic day to ready coaches for the upcoming cricket campaign in 2022.
