Dominic is the founder and 1st of our coaches.
He has been in cricket all his life. As a 7 year old and having a dad whose office overlooked Headingley allows Dom to say “I was there” when people bring up Botham’s Ashes in 1981 and without realising it, this moment in his life set him off with a passion he still holds strong today;
Not just the game, but also the way it is played and how it effects those who play it and their way of life as a whole.
Having worked directly to the Home Secretary as Diary Secretary he then changed direction in careers and joined the Metropolitan Police rising to Sergeant before a serious injury cut short his career and he was retired in 2011.
Throughout his careers he has always played cricket, representing The Home Office, The Civil Service and The Metropolitan Police, as well as club cricket in The Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Kent Leagues.
Dom has now moved on from playing regularly due to the injury, however his passion for cricket hasn’t diminished and he has obtained both the ECB Level 1 and 2 coaching qualifications, as well as attending workshop modules; ‘Working in Schools’ and ‘Deaf Awareness and Coaching in Sport’.
He is currently DBS (CRB) checked and holds valid certificates in First Aid and Safeguarding and Welfare of Children.
Dom has previously coached;
- Kent Community Cricket,
- Bromley, Greenwich and Sevenoaks District Cricket Groups
- Lords Taverners – Greenwich Disability Cricket Team
