Ollie is currently playing for Parnell CC as an opening bowler all-rounder. Having been around the Auckland Premier club cricket scene for the past 10 years Ollie has been working his way through his coaching qualifications and has just completed his NZC Level 2 Certificate.
Having a passion for cricket from a young age he feels he has a lot to offer in the coaching side of the game and is looking to work with keen cricketers of all ages, whether they be a year 5 just starting into hardball, or a Premier cricketer looking for a fresh approach on how they can develop their game.
Along with playing at club level in both England and NZ Ollie has also been involved with County Second Elevens, Auckland A and Northern Districts A teams and from this has learnt to be honest, open and approachable in his attitude towards coaching both groups as well as one on one, and feels this is an effective way to help players of all abilities.
Ollie’s specialised coaching strengths lie more in seam bowling, batting and fielding, although he is able and willing to work with spin bowlers and wicket keepers at more of a beginner’s level.
