Former Gloucestershire stars to deliver coach development workshops
Coaches will have the chance to pick up tips from the likes
of former-Gloucestershire star Chris Taylor at a series of new workshops.
Other ex-professionals taking part include Richard Dawson who
will help uncover the secrets of spin bowling and Andy Stovold who is taking a
session on how to use bowling machines.
Run by the Gloucestershire Cricket Board Coaches Association
this is the second year that coaches across the county have had the opportunity
to learn from people with experience playing and coaching at the highest levels
of the game.
GCBCA chairman Steve Cashmore said: "Following on from last
year's success, we are pleased to offer coaches the opportunity to further
enhance their coaching toolkit by attending these workshops.
"Delivered by elite
coaches working at the cutting edge of their profession they will pass on the
latest ideas, drills and new approaches from their specialist area. We hope our
coaches will benefit from seeing the very best in in their respective fields
and pick up a wide range of fresh ideas to use in their coaching. In turn we
hope this will benefit the next generation if young cricketers in the county."
The workshops will take place in both the north and south of
the county and cost £10 for GCBCA members and £15 for other coaches.
They include a session with Surrey fast bowling coach and
ECB consultant Stuart Barnes, 'batting from the Test arena to the playground'
with Gloucestershire CCC academy director Owen Dawkins and a fielding workshop
from Somerset and England Lions fielding coach Chris Taylor.
