For the past few seasons Wheathampstead Cricket club has had 20 colts attend Lords & Nomansland for the years Performance Squad run by Eamonn Keane and a lead coach from the MCC.
The players (ranging from U9s to U16s) participate in over 4 hrs of high level coaching, having the unique opportunity of utilising the MCC cutting edge video analysis which included Pitch Vision and Hawk Eye technologies.
Each individual piece of footage and coaches feedback is then sent to each of the players and reviewed the following week back at the club where improvements on players techniques highlighted from the footage can be broken down and developed on the home pitch.
This year, the day at Lords was closed by a tour of the ground which included the home dressing room and the Long Room !!!
We are hoping to make this a permanent fixture for the Colts section.
Details for the 2020 programme will be released by Eamonn in due course.
