This course is designed to allow players to develop their game based learning. The mental side of their game will be developed by them being put under pressure in a match situation. Sometimes they will face bowlers and some times we will use the bowling machine to create pressure. Bowlers will be able to look at their variations, field placements and where to bowl at what stages of the innings. We have use of the back pitch and two nets at Neston Cricket Club and will play lots of T20 matches to allow players to develop.
