Another Glamorgan player to join Will Owen at Rydal Penrhos High Performance Centre
4th February 2016

Former professional cricketer and coach Will Owen enlisted the help of an old teammate at his Rydal Penrhos High Performance Centre.

The 27 year-old ex-Glamorgan bowler was joined by current county cricketer David Lloyd for week two of the event on Sunday, January 24.

Prestatyn resident Owen, said: “We spent the session looking at the longer form of the game, how you would start your innings and then how you would go about building on that start in order to score big runs. We also covered how to counteract the swinging ball.

“Each player at the end of the session bowled an over each at David, and everyone who took part really seemed to get a lot out of it, which was great.”

During the eight week programme Owen, who recently signed for Chester Boughton Hall, will go through a number of key areas of coaching, beginning with instructions on how to improve skills in the longer format of the game.

Lloyd – a top order batsman and medium-pace bowler – made his Glamorgan debut in 2012 and has a batting average of 29.08 in his short career to date.

The former professional will be joined by Glamorgan’s young seam bowler Dewi Jones, who made his first class debut in September at just 21.

Owen began coaching pupils at Rydal Penrhos last month with special one-to-one sessions, who include current Glamorgan Academy player and Welsh international Will Sissons.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, added: “Will has already made a huge impact in the short time he has been coaching our pupils, and the High Performance Centre is another chance for them to see just what it take to make it as a professional in the modern game.”
