Outstanding Performers

Since coaching my first student back on September 7, 1986 thousands of young (and old) players have given me and my staff coaches the pleasure of assisting them with their cricket hopes and dreams. Through the internet I have been able to track the progress of many of my former students. For purposes of this list I will detail the players that have represented Australia, their State, played first grade premier cricket or played at a premier team in the lower grades.

BUT I have received great joy in looking up the stats of former students who have continued on with their cricket at grassroots level and become very good senior players making significant contribution with bat, ball and gloves! At this point the list is of only players that have been coached one to one and does not include any of the 30,000 young players that have attended my summer holiday cricket camps over the years across Australia.

I apologise in advance to anyone I have missed on the list, feel free to contact me if any of my details are incorrect or if I have missed one of your notable milestones email: [email protected]
