Former Sussex Captain, John Barclay shows he's still got it during the practical session


Nearly 50 coaches from across Sussex gathered at the Deans Leisure Centre in Rottingdean for the Sussex Association of Cricket Coaches Annual Conference on Saturday 15th February.

The conference, hosted by former Sussex Captain John Barclay & members of the SACC committee, has been hailed as the best yet by the attendees, with glowing reports on social media.

Jim Wallis from the University of Brighton gave an insightful presentation on Talent Identification and how we can use this in our coaching. 

In the afternoon, David Young, who has worked with England U19's, educated our coaches on the subject of developing resilient cricketers through mindset and finished with an enlightening practical session on developing ideas for mental toughness.

Mark Buttifant, the conference organiser, reported that this was the best attended conference to date and next year is set to be bigger and better.
