Banbury Cricket Club have added two key individuals to their
coaching staff ahead of the 2013 season. The underlines Banbury’s commitment to
developing cricketing talent. Over two thirds of the players used by Banbury’s
1st XI in 2012 played youth cricket for the club and this is a
figure the club are keen to maintain or increase.

Paul Atkins joins the club as head coach. His main focus
will on the senior section and developing the considerable talent at BCC

section at both Tuesday and Thursday night senior training, sessions which Paul

Counties and internationally in South Africa and will bring these standards to
Banbury. He will also act as joint captain of the 2nd XI with Andrew
Sabin, another of the Banbury’s most talented coaches.

Banbury CC’s biggest success of 2013 was that of the girls
section, culminating in the U13’s winning the national Lady Taveners
competition. As a result Banbury have secured the services of Brady Barends a
First Class cricketer from South Africa to act as coach to the Ladies 1st
XI who will for the first time in 2013 play national league cricket. Brady will
