Middlesex Cricket is delighted to be able to launch a brand new Coach Shadowing Programme for the 2024 season.

On top of the mentoring programme, which was launched last week, we are now offering the opportunity to all members of the Middlesex coaching community, who are members of the ECB Coaches Association, to shadow coaches throughout the Middlesex programme.

This starts at the community level, where coaches will shadow on the school and community programmes, through to the two professional sides – Middlesex men and Sunrisers.

On launching the programme, Sharon Eyers, Middlesex Cricket’s Head of Coach Education and Development, said: “It is so important as coaches to keep updating our knowledge to keep pace with the fast changing landscape of cricket. In recent years we have seen new formats of the game introduced which has encouraged players to adapt and play differently, which means as coaches we need to adapt our thinking so that we can support our players.

Young cricketers want to emulate the heroes that they see live or on television, so we need to be equipped to encourage their freedom of play and learning.”
