My name is Chris Laker and I support the coaching and delivery of junior programmes at Northern Cricket Club.

At Northern, the players are at the heart of the environment, and we tailor all programmes based on their needs. Basics and fundamentals of the game are trained from beginner to first team cricket, and the simplicity of what we do allows us to be precise. Most importantly, we strive to develop a life-long love of the game for our players to take with them throughout their journeys on our Northern player pathway. Not only do we look at cricket technique, but also physical capabilities such as balance, speed, agility and aerobic work for a long term athletic development and healthy lifestyle for all players.

I play for the Northern First team and currently a part of the Lancashire County Age Group coaching team, where I have the opportunity to adopt the Lancashire way and instil the themes for our Northern Juniors to work with.

We look forward to working with you on our junior pathway.
