The school holidays are nearly here. Book your place at my upcoming cricket coaching clinics.

Learn new skills. Improve your gameplay. Hang out with other cricket players.
The off season is a great time for cricket players to work on their game technique, correct errors and build on strengths without the pressure of competition.

During the upcoming July school holidays, I will be running off season cricket coaching clinics at Killara Park and North Sydney (scroll down for dates).

These coaching clinics provide young players with the expert guidance required to develop their skills, technique and game awareness, in a friendly and inclusive environment.

Myself and my expert coaches will help players hone their skills, leading to improved muscle memory, by repeating correct movements over and over, so they become automatic.

Clinics are tailored to the experience levels of each player and are open to boys and girls aged 6 - 17 years. Come for just one day, a few days or attend every clinic - the choice is yours.

If you've got any questions, don't hesitate to contact me directly on 0401 382 409 or geoff@cricketcoachingclinics.com.au.

I hope to see you there,
Geoff Spotswood
Level 3 Coach (Cricket Australia)

CRICKET NSW FOUNDATION - PLAY IT FORWARD

This End of Financial Year, the Cricket NSW Foundation is raising funds to help increase the access to cricket for boys and girls all across NSW, by removing the financial barrier stopping some families from being able to experience our great game. Funds raised will contribute to helping lower the cost of junior cricket registration and equipment costs for those who need it most. If you can help give the gift of cricket for a young boy or girl for next season, please donate to our cause!

Nasser Hussain became the second professional cricketer to play with Petersham-Marrickville DCC when he joined the club for the 1992-93 season. The success of having David Capel as player/coach the previous season whetted the club’s appetite for a return. Unfortunately, Capel was unavailable. As had been the case in gaining Capel, Wayne Mulherin again contacted his UK friend, Northampton County player Nigel Felton who recommended Nasser Hussain, an Essex professional who had played three Tests for England on a tour of the West Indies in 1990. Nasser accepted the opportunity and joined Petersham-Marrickville as player/coach for the season. Seven years later he would captain England.

Northern Territory Cricket welcomes the completion of a purpose-built drop-in wicket nursery at TIO Stadium, with two drop-in wickets currently housed and plans to build a third.

The nursery is a crucial piece of sporting infrastructure built next to the playing surface to allow for the easy creation, preparation and installation of drop-in cricket pitches in and out of TIO Stadium.

The Territory Labour Government has invested $280,000 in the project as NT Cricket continues its push for the return of International Cricket to the Territory for the first time since 2008.

Player, Premiership winner, Life Member, President, there’s no more proud member of Crib Point Cricket Club than Ricky Thompson.

Who was the best captain you had the good fortune to play with?

Hard to split Henry Dolphin and Luke Herrington. Both fantastic Captains and even better players. I wouldn't mind adding Brad Glenn as the best Coach I've played under. A great cricket mind, who really broke the game down to its simplest form. Didn't hurt that he is a ripper fella as well!!

Clive Johnston 1925-91

An examination of the history of any successful sporting club or association will generally identity a handful of people whose dedicated contribution over an extended period, was an important ingredient in its success. In terms of the Petersham / Petersham-Marrickville District Cricket Club, Clive Johnston was such a person.

With the start of World War II in 1939-40, the 14 year old Petersham-born Clive William Johnston ventured to the local Petersham Oval to attend the Saturday morning coaching classes. Despite his tender years, he showed enough batting talent and enthusiasm to attract the selector’s attention and he made his Sydney Grade debut that season in Petersham’s 3rd Grade team.
