Following a career that saw him score over 9,000 First Class runs and 5,000 One Day runs, Martin has developed a prestigious coaching career as a level 3 professional coach. Martin will not be available to coach on our Summer Academy so please keep an eye on our website or follow us on Facebook to be the first to know which Elite Player or Coach will be joining us.
We’ve partnered with Gray-Nicolls Cricket to add another level of quality to the academy both in terms of the programme and the kit that young athletes will use when on the academy with us.
The Academy works on developing technique to instil best practice and to improve cricketing performance. Our coaches help to develop each player in the technical, tactical, physical and mental elements of the game.
The Academy will cover the following;
- Bowling techniques - Spin, Seam and Swing
- Batting - improving technique and confidence

Our coaching team are happy to help players develop a specific area or skill within which they wish to improve. Please speak to the Lead Coach when signing in on the first day of the Academy.
