FoGR Winter Lunches

2nd FoGR Winter Lunch - Friday 7th February 2020

The FoGR are pleased to announce that the speaker at this lunch will be Alastair Maiden who has recently been appointed as Leicestershire CCC's new Head of Talent Pathway. Alastair has a lot of experience through several senior roles in cricket, including most recently as Interim Head Coach of England Women's Cricket Team, who have enjoyed great success against Pakistan in Kuala Lumpur. Alastair left his role with the ECB to start his new position at the Club earlier this month.

He previously worked as Assistant Coach to England Women Head Coach Mark Robinson, inlcuding the ICC World Cup win in 2017, and was also England Women's Development Programme Lead Batting Coach from 2011 to 2016.

An ECB Level Four Coach with a specialism in batting, Alastair had a playing career that took in a brief spell at Leicestershire 2nd XI. The 37-year old started his coaching career at Durham CCC, working as Community Cricket Coach for Durham Cricket Board and Assistant Academy Coach before going on to lead the Durham 2nd XI. During this time, he learned his trade as a coach and Durham had success in developing their own players, with several going on to play for England.

Alastair's understanding of the performance pathway system, experience with clubs and schools, and knowledge of cricket at county, national and international level make him the ideal fit for his role at the Club. As Head of Talent Pathway, he will play a huge part in Leicestershire's cricket strategy as the Club looks to create more local heroes.

We look forward to hearing about Alastair's career to date, his cricket experiences and how he sees the Club's talented youngsters progressing in the future.
