A major breakthrough has been made to ensure the further development of cricket on the island.

This came through the establishment of the Optimum Performance Cricket Academy’s new facility, which founder Clint St Hill told Saturday Sport will give cricketers a platform to improve their craft. 

 “We are obviously a country with a rich cricket history and we really lack when it comes to facilities, so facilities like this I am 100 per cent certain will aid cricketers being able to come here and be able to have cricketers put in one on one sessions and that is very crucial. We need more of these on the island,” he said.

St Hill has been coaching for the past five years. He started at the Pickwick Cricket Club and out of that formed the Optimum Performance Cricket Academy, which was based at the Pickwick for the majority of that five-year period.   (RG)
