The book, ‘Cricket: A Leading Edge for Captains’, has been on the market for five months, and in the lead up to what promises to be a magnificent summer of cricket, we are very excited to announce a project we have been working on since the start of the New Year. This week, we have secured generous local funding which will enable us to put our project into action!

A Leading Edge has teamed up with Leicester based Schoolwear Solutions supported by Ian Guyler Business Consultancy. This positive new partnership will allow us to bring our book to every school in Rutland in time for the new season.

Thanks to the generosity of Schoolwear Solutions and Ian Guyler, we are able to deliver two complimentary copies of our book to each of the 29 schools in Rutland. One book goes to the school library, giving all children in the schools access to the valuable content. The second copy is to be present to a promising young leader in the school. The lucky recipient, to be decided by each school PE Lead/Head Teacher, will need to demonstrate an interest captaincy and in developing their positive leadership skills. Whilst the A Leading Edge for Captains uses cricket as the focal point, the sport is a vehicle for something much wider. The skills required to be a cricket captain transcend the boundary and spread through life, with the contents of this book having strong relevance to business, management and leadership of people in all areas of life. A Leading Edge authors Wes & Patrick will be visiting several Rutland schools to present books in person and hold coaching sessions and motivational talks to classes and small groups looking at captaincy and associated leadership skills, sharing first-hand some of the content of the book.

This is a fantastic good news story and a great opportunity for local schools to receive a visit from A Leading Edge authors, courtesy of Schoolwear Solutions and Ian Guyler Business Consultancy.
