360 Cricket

Streatham and Marlborough Cricket Club are very pleased to have our coaching partners 360 Cricket extend their relationship with the club as the Junior, Development XI and Men’s T20 Slam shirt sleeve sponsor.  For those unfamiliar, where have you been?  Tell us a little about yourselves?

We founded 360 Cricket in 2019 with the aim of partnering with local cricket clubs and supporting them with their cricket development. 360 Cricket provides affordable high quality coaching sessions for both juniors and adults. We also look to provide structural support to club’s junior systems. Now some 3 years on and with plenty of support from parents and SMCC members we have 2 full-time partnership clubs and provide coaching provisions all year round. We take great pride in having helped SMCC grow both its boys’ and girls’ junior sections over the past few years. We also feel very lucky to be apart of a club that has such an inclusive approach to getting children playing cricket.
Tell us about your own cricket career and how its led to you being involved as coaches?

Robbie started playing with Parley CC as a junior and supported club coaching sessions from the age of 13, this is where his love of the game developed. Showing promise as a youngster he was playing 2nd team cricket by the age of 15 and cemented a regular 1st team place by the age of 17.  On moving to London, Robbie Joined Wimbledon CC securing a regular place in the 1st team which currently play in the Surrey Premier League.  It was at Wimbledon CC that Robbie met Lloyd, who played at Wimbledon CC for 3 seasons.  After missing most of last season due to injury, Robbie is hoping for a more successful season representing the MCC in fixtures throughout the country.

Prior to playing at Wimbledon Lloyd was a successful 1st team cricketer with Coggeshall Town CC in Essex.  Lloyd has now returned to Coggeshall Town C.C. and is about to embark on his 2nd season as 1st team captain in the Two Counties Division 1, with aspirations of gaining promotion into the highly competitive East Anglian Premier League.

Lloyd has developed his passion for cricket and coaching into a teaching role through gaining his PGCE qualification and currently teaches at Kingsdale Foundation School. Previously, he has had roles with Essex County Cricket Club and has been a head coach at multiple clubs.  Robbie has been coaching cricket full-time for the past 7 years and has spent time coaching at Whitgift School whilst being the Academy Coach at Wimbledon CC.  Robbie currently coaches in the Kent Cricket pathway and with the Kent Woman’s side. Most recently Robbie has taken a role as Head of Woman’s and Girls Pathway with Cambridgeshire Cricket.

Who was the biggest inspiration for your careers in cricket and why? 

Lloyd – My biggest inspiration as a cricketer was Andrew Flintoff. I enjoyed the way he played the game with his heart on his sleeve and helped change people’s perception of what cricket is like.

Robbie – My biggest cricketing inspiration was Dimitri Mascarenhas. I used to watch Hampshire regularly where he was a star player and captain, and I loved his big hoop earrings and unique playing style.

 
SMCC and 360 Cricket have recently announced a development pathway for budding young coaches, can you tell us more about this?

For a few seasons now we have been working with several older junior players. Firstly, they acted as young leaders during our coaching sessions, now some have gone on to get their Foundation 1 and support coaching sessions as lead coaches. We are now at the point where we want to formalise this more and encourage more children to become part of the coaching pathway. The structure is designed to give all the older junior members a chance to try coaching and if they enjoy it, we will help them along their coaching journey. Alongside SMCC we plan to invest and create funding to help the young coaches access more courses/qualifications. 
 
The members of the club know 360 Cricket provide the group sessions throughout the winter and summer, but do 360 Cricket do 1-2-1’s?

Yes, we do offer 1-2-1 coaching. Although we do feel group coaching is the vital part of any young cricketer’s experience, and we are committed to making the club provision as enjoyable as possible for all of the young cricketers at SMCC. There may be times when a young cricketer wishes to spend more time developing their game. Whether it’s spending additional time around developing new skills or techniques, or even supporting young players with their confidence. Lloyd and Robbie are very much open to providing 1-2-1 coaching to SMCC juniors so please do contact them via email – info@360cricket.co.uk.
