Scott Kershaw

BIO: I first went to Littleborough Cricket Club at about 10 with a school friend. There I was inspired by my first coach, the amazing ex England leg spinner Tommy Greenhough.

I went on to represent Lancashire through the age groups and enjoyed a varied career with numerous clubs across Lancashire and Yorkshire.

I started coaching at age 18 in the late 1980s and went full time in 2015. I consider myself very fortunate to have a constant involvement in the sport I love. I sincerely hope that this is apparent in my coaching and that live and enthusiasm is passed on to the players in my care.
