Please note that this post is very much a companion piece to the preceding feature – On #firstclasscricketersfirstclassdegrees.
I spent some time with Mark O’Leary – Head Coach at Cardiff MCCU.
It’s not what you might call hard-hitting journalism. In fact it’s not journalism. I like the bloke; we talked.
O’Leary is something of a rising star – ECB Elite Master Level 4 Coach, workshop maestro, deviser of wittily wicked drills – who combines the cricket role with teaching on the Cardiff Met academic staff.
We talk about everything from funding, to honoured alumini, to the future for the scheme. Have a listen.
The sharp-eared may notice mention of £76,000 at the ver-ry end of the discussion. This of course related to Mr O’Leary’s fee.
