Crick­eters in­vited to im­prove their game at coach­ing course

Leek Post & Times - - SPORT -

CRICK­ETERS can take ad­van­tage of a spe­cialised coach­ing course in Leek this week­end if they are look­ing to im­prove their game.

For­mer pro­fes­sional

St­ef­fan Jones will be in town to con­duct a spe­cific strength and con­di­tional train­ing course at Leek High School on Satur­day be­tween 12.30pm and 4.30pm.

Jones, a pro­fes­sional for 20 years, in­sists he wants to help evey­one to per­form both ef­fec­tively and of­fi­ciently. He says: “I wish to share my ex­pe­ri­ences, the right tech­niques and train­ing meth­ods with as­pir­ing fast bowlers who want to stay fit, get strong, avoid in­juries and stay fast.

His meth­ods have been backed by for­mer Som­er­set and Eng­land bats­man Mar­cus Trescoth­ick and Aus­tralian leg­end Justin Langer. Trescoth­ick says: “It’s no co­in­ci­dence dur­ing the best pe­riod in my ca­reer I was trained by St­ef­fan Jones, he helped to pare­pare me for a num­ber of Eng­land tours. I can safely say his meth­ods work, whether it was do­ing ply­o­met­ric jumps, strong­man train­ing, Olympic lift­ing or sprint train­ing, ev­ery method was both chal­leng­ing and cricket spe­cific, it worked for me.”

Langer adds: “Great lead­er­ship is about great ex­am­ple and there are few bet­ter ex­am­ples of com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lence than St­ef­fan Jones.”

Any­one in­ter­ested is asked to con­tact Brian Mel­lor on 07866 415523.

The cost will be ap­prox­i­mately £40 per del­e­gate.
