CRICKET: County pair handed coaching accolades
10:30am Saturday 6th October 2012 in Sport
Oxfordshire pair Joe Harris and Rhian Todd both collected awards after being nominated by Sky Sports for the young coach of the year.
Harris, from Challow & Childrey, and Freeland’s Todd were honoured for “outstanding services to grassroots cricket”.
To mark their nominations, the duo spent a day at the National Cricket Performance Centre.
Part of the day included a masterclass session for former Essex and England bowler Peter Such, as well as Leicestershire batting coach Ben Smith and Durham fast bowling coach Neil Killeen.
“Having the opportunity to attend a masterclass session with three great coaches will really help me develop my skills further,” Todd said.
Harris added: “I can now go back to Challow & Childrey and pass on a number of useful drills for all areas of the game.”
