Trent College 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.

 

Scott Boswell, Trent College Head of Cricket, along with supporting staff David Hartley and Lauren Nicholls accompanied twenty (20) 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.

 

Scott Boswell, Trent College Head of Cricket commented:

“This is now our second visit to Desert Springs. Desert Springs Resort delivers first class facilities, accommodation and staff. It is an excellent place to bring a cricket tour to bond and develop in a relaxed atmosphere!”
