The Spin Academy
A unique opportunity for young cricketers to receive dedicated spin bowling coaching from former International Spinner, Peter Such.
The Spin Academy, which is open to children nationwide who are aged 11 to 19, seeks to discover, improve and support gifted spin bowlers through a blended approach based on the extensive experience of former International Spinner, Peter Such, as both top-level player and coach.
Over recent years as a coach, Peter has worked closely with the likes of Monty Panesar, Graeme Swann, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Jack Leach, Matthew Parkinson, Zafar Ansari, Mason Crane and Dominic Bess, whilst also supporting England Under 19, England Lions and County Spin Bowlers.
As a player, Peter had a 20 year career with Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Essex and England. During that time, as a spin bowler he took over 1,000 wickets in First XI County Cricket. On 51 occasions he took 5 wickets in an Innings and had nine 10 wicket bags. In his 11 Test Matches he took 37 wickets including two 5 wicket hauls with a Test Match best of 6 for 67 on debut verses Australia at Old Trafford.
