Glamorgan/Cricket Wales event hailed a success
November 24, 2021

A coaching event organised by Glamorgan Cricket Club and Cricket Wales at Rydal Penrhos was hailed as a tremendous success.

Rydal Penrhos has a long-standing history of cricketing achievements, 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 Rydal Penrhos was thrilled to host a special coaching event on Saturday 13 November in partnership with Cricket Wales and Glamorgan County Cricket Club.

The Coaching CPD Day ran from 10.00am-5.00pm and covered 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 was Matt Maynard MBE, a former England international and Glamorgan star who has since gone on to become a successful coach on the domestic scene.

He was 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 day was to provide coaches up and down the North Wales region with a refresher of technical, tactical and practical coaching content that can be applied throughout the Welsh cricketing pathway.

This focused on everything from club level to regional cricket and County Age Group cricket.

We would like to thank Glamorgan and Cricket Wales for choosing Rydal Penrhos for the event and look forward to welcoming you all back to our fantastic campus very soon.
