A brief paragraph on your time at Stowe and how you were supported on and off the sports field and what enjoyed most about the sport at Stowe: I had a really great 5 years at Stowe and have taken away so many special memories. I have made friendships to treasure and learnt so much about myself and others around me. The support I received at Stowe was second-to-none both on and off the field. With regards to on the field; the coaching staff were fantastic in assisting my development (technically, tactically, physically and psychologically) and always put in the extra time and effort to ensure I was happy with my preparation. Then, when it came to off the field support; my academic teachers were very understanding of my sporting commitments and so were always willing to be of extra help in supporting preps, coursework and exam preparation.

The thing I enjoyed most about the sport at Stowe was having unlimited access to the outstanding facilities, supported by a team of excellent coaches. This meant that training sessions were highly productive and areas of my development could be effectively worked on. For example, I could use the bowling machines to consolidate technical aspects of my batting.
