Former Northamptonshire and Glamorgan County Cricketer, James Kettleborough (00-11) led an excellent masterclass of batting against spin with batters from the Prep and Upper School on Friday 17th March. Using the School’s new Merlyn Spin Machine, James challenged the boys to try different shots against the spinning ball e.g. sweep shots, hitting over the top and rotating the strike. James, said, “All the boys did extremely well as batting against the spin machine is very tough, especially for the younger boys, and it was really good to see all of them listening and then giving it a go!”.
We’d like to thank James for returning to the School to share his expertise and enthusiasm with the boys and hope to welcome him again soon.
