Chris Adams, the Head of Cricket at Seaford College, is already planning for the start of the season and is looking forward to first full summer at the school. “I’m excited about the summer ahead,” he said. “I am at Seaford College full time now which means I get the flavour of an entire season at the school and I am really looking forward to it. The season starts with a bang when our 1st XI take on the Old Seafordians on the Saturday before the summer term starts and that will be a very special occasion.”
Having won five Test caps for England, captained Sussex to three Championship titles and coached Surrey, Sri Lanka and Holland, Mr Adams has an incredible amount of cricketing experience that he will bring to his role at Seaford College. “I have spent a lifetime in high level pressurised cricket and coming to Seaford College is a breath of fresh air. I feel the environment at the school has given me a new energy and a new set of challenges as a coach and that is how it should be. We are here to challenge the students and help them to reach their potential”.
It will be a very busy summer of cricket at Seaford College and Mr Adams is relishing the prospect of the season starting. “We are trying to create as much cricket, for everybody, of all standards and get them playing competitive matches”, he said. “Everybody will have a great time and I want there to be a real element of having fun and playing the game through the sessions we do with the students this year. I remember my days at school and the most important thing we can introduce into the student’s timetable for cricket is to get them actually playing the game this summer”.
