Pro Coach Yorkshire Cricket players are now back in England having completed a successful four (4) days of warm weather pre-season cricket and fitness training between Monday 4th – Friday 8th April at Desert Springs Resort, Europe’s only international award-winning luxury family resort and championship desert golf course with its very own dedicated Cricket Academy, in the Almanzora region of Almeria, Andalucía in south-east Spain.


Andy Laws, Pro Coach Yorkshire Marketing Manager, along with Mark Lawson, Director of Coaching, accompanied eight (8) players who completed bowling, batting and fielding practice as well as strength and conditioning training sessions as they stepped up their physical preparations for the upcoming 2016 season.


Andy Laws, Pro Coach Yorkshire Marketing Manager commented:

“This is now our second visit to Desert Springs. It is fantastic to see the cricket facility go from strength to strength with the addition of further first-class wickets. With friendly knowledgeable staff and superb accommodation Pro Coach will look to offer a third Pre-Season Academy without hesitation!”
