OUR STORY

NEIL RIDER

Neil, the company’s MD, played cricket throughout his youth reaching Minor Counties Level and making England Under 17 trials alongside the likes of Andrew Flintoff, and Alex Tudor. On moving to the coaching side of the game, he became the youngest Development Officer for the ECB, and subsequently Manager and Assistant Coach of the Ashes-holding England Women’s Team between 2003-2007.

SIMON RIDER

Simon, Operations Manager, played County Cricket for Suffolk too (U10 to U17). A right-handed batsman, he once managed to bowl someone out despite suffering a broken finger. Simon's love of sport carried through to his education, studying Sports Engineering at university.
