A group of enthusiastic cricketers have recently taken advantage of the
Great British summer weather by taking part in an Andrew Flintoff
Academy at the School.
Over 30 youngsters have taken part in the
Academy being held at the School for a fun filled week packed with every
aspect of cricket coaching, designed to build on existing talent and
unearth future stars.
One of the potential stars of the future,
Ross Theadens, participated in the Academy through a place offered by
the School at a charity auction held at his local Frankton Cricket Club.
The Academy has been fully utilising the School’s facilities, including the indoor swimming pool and cricket nets.
Flintoff commented, “Cricket has given me so much and my Academy is the
perfect way for me to pass on the passion and love that I have for the
game. Creating an enjoyable environment is so important to enhance
learning and this is what my Academy is based on.”
Sports Centre Manager, added, “It is great to see external courses using
the College facilities, especially in such great weather. During the
week we were delighted to welcome Dean Headley, former England one day
international team player, who was also on hand to impart his knowledge
from professional cricket to the young participants.”
