Meet the coaches - Dave Walter

What have been some of the highlights from working with us?

My role as administrator and coaching cover does not lend itself to highlights, but there have been some very interesting occurrences: delivering over 500 hours of coaching in the summer of 2019 due to the injury and resignation of a staff coach, umpiring an MCC Hub tournament at Arundel Castle and coaching the Swiss U11 and U15 in Switzerland to name but a few.

You do a whole range of things for the company, what is your favourite aspect?

My main role is administration, which I enjoy doing but there is no substitute for seeing young cricketers develop. So, an extended period of working with the same players is definitely the most enjoyable part.

Who were your cricket inspirations growing up?

Mike Brearley for his tactical and man management skills.

Geoff Miller as he was like me, an off-spinning all-rounder.

David Gower for his effortless efficiency.

What, in your opinion, makes a great cricketer?
