Cameron Steel speaks to Park View Academy cricket students

Durham Cricket’s Cameron Steel spent Monday afternoon speaking with budding cricketers studying at Park View Academy of Sports Cricket development centre in partnership with Durham Cricket.  

Steel who is currently in Australia spoke virtually over zoom to students on his journey into professional cricket, the highs and lows of playing professional sport, playing for Durham, before rounding off with a question-and-answer session.

Current year 12 students who are based at Emirates Riverside joined in on the talk, while students who have applied to join the course from September 2021 were also invited.

Ash Thorpe, Cricket Development Centre head coach said: “Cameron is a great example for our students and for them to be able to relate and learn from about their cricketing game.

“We have been doing two zoom calls a week to keep the group engaged, while they have been attending online strength and conditioning sessions along with their schoolwork on zoom.

“It is important for them to be able to listen to a professional cricketer and hear what they have to say, but also it is key that we keep the students engaged throughout these difficult times.”

Chris Rushworth and Graham Clark have attended indoor net sessions with the group previously, with former Durham cricketer Gareth Breese has also provided expertise to the students.
