SPANISH NATIONAL SQUAD HOLD FIRST TRAINING CAMP OF THE SEASON
It is a big weekend for Spanish cricket as the National squad are getting together for the first of three training camps before the ICC-Europe Division 3 Tournament at La Manga at the end of August.
All 3 training camps will be overseen by the Spanish National Coach Bobby Denning, who recently completed his level IV coaching badge, the highest cricket coaching qualification in the UK. Prior to taking " La Seleccion " with coaching drills Bobby will take time out to take an "In House" coaching course that is being co-ordinated by the Director of Senior Cricket George Wambeek.
Prior to the tournament in August, (when Spain will play against Malta, Isle of Man, Israel, Belguim and Portugal ) the National squad will have two friendly games against the strong Scottish outfit Aberdeen CC in April and the premier Surrey club Wimbledon CC in July respectively .
