FORMER England and Leicestershire wicketkeeper Paul Nixon hosted a coaching masterclass at Bromsgrove School on Sunday.

Over 50 coaches and players from all levels of boys and girls representative cricket attended an intensive three hour session on the technical aspects of wicket keeping.

This is the first of a number of events planned by the Worcestershire Cricket Coaches Association.

League secretary Jon Roe said: “Wicketkeeping is an essential part of cricket but it is often overlooked by coaches at the expense of bowling and batting.

“The coaches will now be able to develop those skills.”
