oneillMark O'Neill to coach the GDCC Under 21 Academy squad in the 2014/15 season 

The Gordon Club is pleased to announce that Mark O'Neill will again be the head Under 21 Academy coach for the 2014/15 season.

Mark will also have the services of Matt Nicholson,  Bruce Edgar and Ed Howitt to assist him during the season.

The Under 21 program will again include the in-house intense coaching session at the Narrabeen Institute of sport facility. This will be pre-season and will be by invitation.

The Under 21 Academy will also continue its approach to the timing of our sessions this season with more of an emphasis on building up to the Poidevin Gray matches. This will enable the Academy members to prepare with the club in the early pre-season and then have their own specialist sessions as the PG matches approach.

The Under 21 program will include:

  • Strength and conditioning sesssion with Cricket NSW Coach
  • Specialist batting sessions with Mark O'Neill
  • Specialist bowling sessions with Matt Nicholson
  • Specialist spin bowling sessions with Qualified coach
  • On going Tuesday night sessions with First Grade squad
  • Academy match Evans XI vs Colley XI
  • Practice T20 match against First Grade

The Under 21 Academy members will be invited to train under Mark O'Neill and the First Grade Squad to give those in the Academy not in First Grade the opportunity of being directly involved in the elite level of Grade cricket.

The Under 21 squad is by invitation only, however the Academy committee is very pleased to welcome new players for consideration. Fell free to contact us with your background and we will be in touch.
