Ellesmere Attracts Future International Cricketers

This year Ellesmere has been privileged to welcome cricket coaches and players from all over the world who have enhanced the already thriving Cricket Academy with new ideas and a wide range of experience. Angus Bowyer learned to play his junior cricket in Australia and is now spearheading the 1st XI bowling attack with Harry Stow, who has recently joined the school from playing in the Dubai ICC Cricket Academy.

Academy Cricket Coaches Craig Williamson (ex Derbyshire County 2nd XI player), Rick Moore (present Northants 2nd XI player) and Matthew Shawcross (Birmingham League) are fresh from playing winter cricket in Australia. Tushar Guptar, Karan Chahar, Auyush Prakash, Amit Jindal and Japesh Thind have all joined the Academy for the Summer Term from India to further their cricket development. Gareth Owen, 1st XI Coach explained, 'it is great to bring different cultural cricket experiences from all over the world to benefit our students and the Ellesmere Cricket Academy. It is particularly pleasing to hear that the Ellesmere College was noted in the Kashmir Times in relation to our student exchange programme. As a result of our coaching programme the players from India have adapted well to English conditions and have been successful in representing the School, culminating to date with Auyush scoring a century not out and Japeh scoring 72 not out, in recent games. Also our Lower School pupils have particularly benefited from the intense coaching delivered by those with international experiences.'
