I don’t know if you remember, but back in 2007 our son, Nathan King, started training with you and Complete Cricket as a teeny-tiny 5 year old, up until we left to come back home to New Zealand in 2009.
We thought we’d let you know how he’s going now. This season he was selected for the Western Bay of Plenty Under 11s rep team. They have recently come back from his first tournament where they played 6 30-over games in 4 days. (In the baking heat too!) His team ended up winning the tournament!
Nathan is an integral part of the bowling attack, usually coming in through the middle of an innings and completely strangling the run rate while taking regular wickets. He ended up bowling 21 overs through the tournament, taking 6 wickets, with an economy rate of around 1.9 and an average of around 6!
He has turned into quite the little bowler, who’s always reliable in the field, and a mid-lower order batsman.
He absolutely loves his cricket, and we believe it was the training he got at the very beginning, in Solihull, that laid the foundations for this!
