Former Glamorgan fast bowler and current coach at Rydal Penrhos School Will Owen will host a series of summer cricket camps in the coming summer holidays.

Owen was forced to retire as a professional cricketer in August following a series of back and hip injuries but has stayed involved with the game as coach at Rydal Penrhos, where he began in November.

He now plans to impart his knowledge and experience on young cricketers in the area with camps held at Boughton Hall Cricket Club in Chester, where he still plays.

They will be held on four separate weeks, starting in July (11th-15th and 25th-29th) before two further camps in August (8th-12th and 22nd-25th), and all days will run from 9am to 3.30pm.

He will be assisted by Lee Dixon, the Chester and Cheshire captain and anybody wanting to find out more or to book are encouraged to call 07557 966727 or email [email protected]

Owen, 27, became a member of Glamorgan's first-team squad in 2011 after completing his studies at Cardiff Met. He took 30 first-class wickets for the county and also struck 69 against Derbyshire sharing in a club record 10th-wicket stand with James Harris.

He missed most of the 2013 season due to injury and returned to play Twenty20 cricket in 2014. After making a number of appearances in the shortest form of the game, injury struck again and he confirmed his retirement last year.
