Somerset Community Coaches


After a successful school year of coaching, the Somerset Cricket Board is please to announce the employment of our third Community Coach, Sophie Luff. 

Somerset’s community coaches Andrew Skidmore (Left), Sophie Luff (Middle), and Alex Taylor (right) are again excited to be able to offer more coaching opportunities to the Schools around the county.

This expansion of workforce continues to be a fantastic opportunity for schools to spark interest in the sport and hone skills leading quickly into the Indoor competitions which begin in the New Year.

“It was great to have a fully qualified coach who was passionate about the sport attend and this clearly rubbed off on some of our pupils”

(Stephen Spurrell, St Bernadette’s School)

“Really impressed with the coaching/support given to us. It has had a massive impact on cricket at Westfield, previous years we have struggled to get good numbers at cricket training, this year numbers have flourished along with interest”

(Richard Scott, Westfield Academy)

The coaches will be available for Breakfast, Lunchtime and After-school clubs or to help prepare your teams for the winter and summer competitions. If you are interested in receiving any support then please contact them on the following email address:
