I’m delighted to share some exciting news from Woodbridge Road.
Ollie Soames, a top order batsman who has spent his recent years contracted with Hampshire CCC, has joined the club for the coming season. Ollie will be coming on board in a new role as our Club Professional, which we anticipate will benefit and have a big impact on all our players across the club.
Not only will Ollie bolster the first XI’s batting line up, he will bring invaluable experience for all our senior sides to draw upon from his time as a professional county cricketer.
More widely, in his role as club pro, Ollie will be supporting the development and delivery of both the junior and senior training programmes (he is a level 2 coach), working with and mentoring our senior players to develop their games and progress their cricket ambitions, and generally be an all round ambassador for the clubs activities.
Please join me in welcoming Ollie into the club and keep an eye on our social media pages to see him in action.
