The Falcons contingent is cycling a return journey from Ashbourne via the Tissington Trail, both providing an acid test of their strength & conditioning as well as raising funds for a deserving cause.

All-rounder Matt Fletcher said: “A few of the guys have close links with Alzheimer issues within their families so the money we raise is going to an excellent cause, as well as having some real meaning to the guys taking part.”

The Academy syllabus incorporates classroom based tuition including cricket knowledge, the principles of strength & conditioning, nutrition, sports psychology and performance lifestyle training alongside the practical coaching sessions; fielding and in the nets.
