Cricket Legends Inspire Students: A Masterclass with Labuschagne and Maynard

June 13, 2024

Our senior cricket teams were recently treated to an unforgettable cricketing experience, a batting masterclass from two renowned figures in the sport. Current Australian Test batsman Marnus Labuschagne and former England and Glamorgan CCC cricketer, as well as ex-Glamorgan coach, Matthew Maynard, graced us with their presence and shared their extensive knowledge and skills.

The boys had the unique opportunity to bowl at Labuschagne and Maynard, testing their skills against a world-class batsman. This practical experience was incredibly motivating, as they could see first hand the level of skill and concentration required to compete at the highest level.

The highlight of the day was an engaging Q&A session with both Labuschagne and Maynard. The boys eagerly asked questions about batting techniques, mental strategies, and personal experiences on and off the field.

The session concluded with both Labuschagne and Maynard offering words of encouragement to our senior sides. The boys left the session not only with improved technical skills but also a deeper understanding of what it takes to succeed. We are incredibly grateful to Marnus Labuschagne and Matthew Maynard for sharing their time and expertise with us.
