My son Harry (12) leaves after every session with John feeling a great sense of achievement and confidence. I can see how his skills are being developed at a pace that no other training has given him. That's a great relationship we really value.

The best thing I can say about John is his ability to understand and adapt his coaching methods to the needs of his students. The progress he has made with my son during the past year has been huge and as a Father seeing the relationship develop and grow is really encouraging. In addition, 'fun' remains at the core of all his coaching.

We have used John for both our junior and senior winter coaching, in order to improve our players' performance. It has been a great success on both parts. He is both highly knowledgeable and skilled in putting this into a manner that players can understand, whatever their ability.

Ellis started off shy and unsure of his abilities. John has been fantastic in teaching Ellis new skills, which in turn has boosted his confidence! His patience and understanding in bringing the best out in people is brilliant.

I have had one to one coaching with John for the past year. During this time my batting has improved significantly. The sessions are fun but also make you think and work hard.
