OP Bethan Ellis Gives A Cricket Masterclass

Bethan returned to Princethorpe College just before the end of term to run cricket coaching sessions with the Year 7 and Year 8 girls.

Pupils in Years 7 and 8 have been treated to a very special coaching session courtesy of professional cricketer and Old Princethorpian, Bethan Ellis. Bethan returned to Princethorpe College to run cricket coaching sessions with the Year 7 and Year 8 girls.

Bethan currently plays professional cricket with Lightning Cricket, the number one T20 side in the East Midlands, her team also competes in the Women’s Elite Domestic competition. She left Princethorpe in 2017 and is at Loughborough University studying for a Masters.  

Bethan put through the girls through their paces, stressing the importance of getting the basics right, looking at grip, stance and alignment and you could see their play improve as they put her advice into practise. They enjoyed a coaching session in the nets followed by a mini match. Bethan even made time for a one-on-one session with talented young cricketer Year 8 pupil, Amy. The session finished with a Q&A.

It was an amazing opportunity for the Princethorpe girls. Many thanks to Bethan for coming into school to work with our pupils.
