ICC officer Pick to visit Bermuda

Former Nottinghamshire and England fast bowler Andy Pick, now working as an ICC High Performance Officer for the Americas region, will conduct a four-day training camp for national team cricketers in early February.

Pick and former first class cricketer and Level 4 coach, Chris Brown, will conduct a Bermuda Cricket Board National Academy clinic for senior, under-19 and national academy squad members from February 11-14. Brown is an England Cricket Board Level 4 coach and spin bowling specialist coach and is an ICC Americas coaching consultant.

"Firstly, both coaches will be working with myself, national team coach Arnold Manders, assistant coach Clevie Wade and BCB National fast bowling coach Lorenzo Tucker to implement a high performance clinic," Moore explained.

"Secondly, Andy Pick and Chris Brown will be conducting the coaching workshops open to all BCBNA, club and youth coaches throughout the Island. Coach Pick and coach Tucker will be conducting free fast bowling workshops while coach Brown, alongside national team player Joshua Gilbert, will conduct high performance spin bowling workshops. Coach Brown is the head coach at the Norfolk Cricket Academy and worked with Gilbert last summer while he was at the Academy after being awarded a scholarship through the Youth, Sport and Recreation’s National Junior Athlete Sponsorship programme."

The senior national team is preparing for the World Cricket League Division 3 Championships to be held here from April 28 to May 5. The visit of Pick and Brown is timely.

"On behalf of the Board I am extremely pleased to welcome both Andy and Chris to the island to assist our senior team prepare for the World Cricket League Division 3 (April 28 — May 5 in Bermuda) and the ICC U19 World Cup Qualifier (July 7-14 in Toronto),” said BCB President Lloyd Fray.

“It is particularly important to the Board to provide our club and youth coaches with the chance to benefit from this first class coaching expertise and knowledge and I fully expect that they will take full advantage of this opportunity. We are extremely grateful for the support of the Bermuda Government and our BCBNA sponsors, Bank of Bermuda Foundation, and the XL Foundation who make this important programme viable and successful."
