Having been a professional cricketer with Kent and Gloucestershire for a combined 16 years, Geraint brings a wealth of experience to our cricket programme. As well as playing cricket at over 500 combined first-class, list A and T20 matches, Geraint made 85 appearances for England and 2 for his country of birth – Papua New Guinea. A highlight of his career was the involvement in the 2005 Ashes series and most noticeably for taking the winning catch in the second Test match of that series. Geraint is an ECB level 3 coach. He assists with coaching the Kent age groups and Academy teams.
Since retiring in September 2015, Geraint has been gaining experience in the education sector before joining St Lawrence College as a PSHE and Games teacher in September 2017. He is currently studying for a BSc in Business and Sports Management.
It is great to have Geraint on board at SLC and what a wonderful opportunity for our aspiring cricketers to be coached by such a vastly experienced cricketer.
