Many thanks to Neil Pickup, whose post I read about my Coventry course www.maverickscricket.com/absat.htm - I'm pleased you enjoyed it and if you are as stiff as a board that's a GOOD sign!
I didn't come on here to advertise, but I did want to say that many of the bowling questions you have can be covered on the tips and hints page on my www.maverickscricket.com website, which was set up for players and coaches alike.
Neil was very open minded on the coaching course, which really helps and his action definitely improved a great deal during the session.Well done.
The hardest thing I find is getting out to fast bowlers who want to improve. They don't know where to find good coaches, and I don't know who wants help! Let's hope forums like this can assist everyone.....
Best, Ian Pont
