Richard Halsall (ex. England Cricket fielding coach and Bangladesh assistant coach) visited Norwich School on Wednesday 10th October to run an assessment day which will assist selection for the 2018/19 intake for the Cricket Academy (a partnership between Sussex County Cricket Club and Norwich School).
The academy is about to start its second year and there have been over 40 applications this year from boys and girls aged 10-16 across East Anglia. Richard Halsall is Director of the academy.
The aim of the partnership is to provide a route for talented cricketers in the East Anglia area to be involved in an elite development programme, which it is hoped will in turn lead on to them becoming first-class cricketers or international women’s cricketers. They will benefit from top level coaching and support at the impressive facilities at Norwich School.
