The Cricket Academy was an immediate success at Huddersfield New College, and has since developed a national reputation for its excellence.
The academy boasts several Yorkshire Academy and promising local league players. We have been on several tours, notably to South Africa, Barbados and London (Lords). Due to its huge success, a development programme has been created where players who have the potential for the academy the following year can receive the same specialist coaching and play against some of the top schools and college in Yorkshire and around the UK.
Coaching is delivered 4 times a week by David Weston (ECB Level 3 coach) and Peter Lombard. Training sessions include speed, agility, quickness development, video analysis as well as diet and nutrition.
Students have the opportunity to represent the college on Wednesdays against other college and school teams in the North East Region.
During the winter months training is indoors in the college’s brand new custom made cricket nets, and indoor competitions are organised and played at Headingley and The Cricket Factory in Sowerby Bridge.
