Former England captain Gooch offers wisdom to Cayman Cricket program

Legendary former English cricket captain Graham Gooch arrived in Cayman late last week (17 May) as part of Cayman Cricket’s efforts to raise funds for the program and impart what they hope was valuable cricket knowledge.

Gooch joined a group of both young and old cricketers at the Smith Road Oval Saturday (19 May). The 64-year-old said Cayman must take major steps in their youth programs to develop the next generation of cricketers.

“In order to improve Cricket here in the Islands you have to get more people playing, both guys and girls. If you can get more people playing, the chances of finding better quality cricketers are enhanced. If you can raise the profile, especially in the schools when the kids are young, you have to start from somewhere.”

After posing for pictures, Gooch took a small group of cricketers into the clubhouse to impart what he called the four major steps in ‘preparing to win’.

“Attitude is one, technical skills, different for every player and coach is two. Knowledge is the third one, and the fourth one in cricket, especially if you’re a batsman is the most important, is concentration.”

Gooch also participated in a golf tournament as well as a social throughout the weekend.
