Following the early stages of the implementation of our exciting new WE ARE MIDLAND GUILDFORD ethos (read more about this on this site) the Club has conducted an exhaustive process to identify and select key personnel who will provide the lead for us all as season 2016-2017 looms.

The seniors’ selections below reflect those individuals who have whole-heartedly adopted our need for the empowerment and development of all of our senior and junior male and female players and have expressed a strong desire to provide the flexible leading and coaching base for this to succeed.

The selection/recruitment process continues and there will be other coaches & specialist/skills coaches appointed as soon as possible

Coaching staff

The Club has departed from a focussed pursuit of technical and fitness coaching. Whilst those cricket skills and fitness elements will remain as major coaching ingredients moving forward we have also adopted the requirement for a flexible coaching group whose collective expertise will be utilised across-the-board (men, women, boys & girls) to ensure cricket and personal development is structured, measured, communicated and enjoyed by every player in the process. The following coaches will flexibly and collectively lead the way commencing with our imminent pre-season training program
