Testimonial

My association with Hamish Solomons began at twelve years of age when my father sought professional coaching to help develop my game. This began a player/coach relationship that has lasted over a decade and continues to be of invaluable assistance to me. Working out of Kingsgrove Cricket Academy, Hamish was able to guide me week to week from a precocious and raw junior cricketer into a well organised top order batsman. I believe our hard work was the catalyst behind my swift progression through the senior grades to where I now currently find myself.

Throughout this time, Hamish has offered unending assistance and unwavering support.

Now, at 23 years of age, as I prepare to make the move to Tasmania on a full state contract, I can testify without hesitation I would not have been able to achieve this without the mentoring of my long term coach and friend, Hamish. His profile speaks for itself.
