Pro Tips From Former QLD Cricket Greats

A recent visit from 2 of the Bulls Masters gave our Academy of Sport Cricketers a chance to learn from seasoned professionals.
Luke Feldman is a right arm fast medium bowler who had played with 5 big bash franchises as well as representing his home state in first class games with the Bulls. Lee Carseldine is a left handed all-rounder who has played Shield and One Day for the Bulls in the 90s & 00s.

BCC Academy of Sport Cricketers were put through their paces by their coach Rod Howard during their lunchtime clinic with Lee and Luke participating alongside the players. They both had plenty of wisdom to empart about styles of bowling and batting which the students payed close attention to.

In an interview with Community Engagement Officer Matt Gees after the game it was clear that both players were impressed by the talent at BCC. “My highlight was the batting drill at the end” Luke said. “You could some great raw talent on the field and the session was so well organised and run by Mr Howard’. Lee agreed, especially noting the behaviour of the players. “With these clinics you only have a small amount of time so its important to get as much out of it as possible” he said. “These kids were so well behaved and wanted to be there running drills and learning more about this game”.

Whilst both of these Masters Players have had many professional highlights in their careers, they were in agreeance that for them, getting to make a career out of playing a sport they love with their mates was their favourite. 

Established in 2010, The Bulls Masters Program aims to grow the game of cricket in QLD. They travel throughout the state especially to regional and rural communities providing coaching clinics and development opportunities to schools and cricket clubs and fundraise for local clubs and charities. This is the 4th visit to Bundaberg with the Bundaberg Regional Council partnering with the Bulls Masters to return for at least another 2 years to come.
