WE NEED TO GET FOXES’ CULTURE RIGHT
I’VE been Leicestershire head coach for over a week now, and the job has been great so far. There haven’t been any real surprises as yet, and I’m loving being involved with a county so close to my heart.
This week is all about getting to know people. I’ve been finding out about our player pathways with all the academy players and building relationships within the club, from the receptionist through to the physio. I’m able to go more in depth having more time and the resources to do so.
Relationships need to be built up with every single person at the club. It’s been half-term so a lot of people are away, but we’ve still been able to run through the emerging players’ programme with parents.
We did a presentation to show them we’ll use top class coaches because we want to be elite.We need to get the culture right through the whole club and all work to the right values moving forward. The plan is to invest heavily in the foundations of youth.
