Pro Coach Yorkshire were pleased to host the first Pro Coach Yorkshire Tournament at Ampleforth College. As well as teams made up of our own past and present course attendees; we welcomed teams from around the globe, including the California Cricket Academy from the USA and the Jason Gillespie Academy from Australia.
We were incredibly lucky to have perfect weather for (most of) the week, which set up some excellent games and outstanding individual performances. Ampleforth College is one of the most idyllic settings in Yorkshire and provided a beautiful backdrop for a packed week of cricket. Our international visitors certainly got to experience some of the best views Yorkshire has to offer. All of the teams lived on site for the week and proved a great opportunity for the Pro Coach players to bond and form new friendships, while developing the skills to live and play independently. All of the games were played in the true spirit of the game and were a credit to all of the organisations involved. The Jason Gillespie Academy were the eventual worthy winners of the tournament. We’re looking forward to getting back there next year for round 2 and hope to be joined by many more international visitors!
