PRESS RELEASE

Established in 2015, the Mount Kelly MCC Foundation Hub continues to grow and excel.

48 boys and girls from state schools enjoy 20 hours of free coaching throughout the autumn and winter months. 5 coaches deliver a mix of technical, tactical, strength and conditioning, with weekly match play scenarios. Matches are enjoyed in the summer months.

Some of the boys and girls have improved to the extent that local County Age Group squads have selected them, with many more having won places in County Development Centres.

Reece Bird, National Cricket Hub Manager for MCC Foundation visited and was extremely impressed. We have always been rated as ‘outstanding’ following inspection, and the MCC Foundation are delighted that we attract boys and girls who are committed to the programme, some travel for over an hour each way for training!

Mr Bobby Skelton, Director of Sport at Mount Kelly commented, “Mount Kelly’s cricketing success has been impressive in the last couple of years and our player development programme continues to make rapid progress. It is fantastic to have the MCCF Hub as a focused pathway and to support cricket development for talented children in our local community.
