Former king of spin to host local cricket clinic

David Lee December 14, 2017

FORMER Australian left arm spinner, Ray Bright will be inspiring the young cricketing talent of Shepparton this summer when he heads up the coaching panel for the SBCC Cricket Clinics.

Shaun Brown of Shaun Brown’s Cricket Coaching said, “Ray is an elite coach and is currently a Victorian State Selector so it’s fantastic that we have him on board for this year’s camp.”

Ray Bright, was a crafty left arm orthodox Bowler who deceived batsmen with his flight and change of pace. Ray, who played 25 Test for Australia and took 53 wickets with best bowling figures of 7/87 against Pakistan in 1980 is a fantastic addition to our coaching panel. Ray is a current state selector for Victoria and has an abundance of knowledge about all aspects of the game.

“Our aim with the clinics is to provide an excellent learning experience for enthusiastic cricketers between the ages of 7 to 16. Our program covers all facets of cricket 20/20, One Day and Test formats. All aimed at improving participant’s skills, knowledge and enjoyment of the game,” Brown said.

Over the past 30 years, thousands of participants have improved their skills in all aspects of the game at the regional camps.

“It’s fantastic to be able to involve former test stars in areas that normally don’t get that exposure,” Brown said, a professional Cricket Coach since 1986, who himself grew up playing junior cricket in regional Victoria.

The clinic features the use of video analysis, a comprehensive program and written reports for all who attend this summer.

The camp will be held at Vibert Reserve on Tuesday, January 23 and Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 9am to 3pm each day.
