Former Australian captain and batsman Graham Yallop is set to lead a junior cricket coaching camp in Apsley.

Yallop played 39 Tests for Australia and scored over 2700 Test runs at an average of 41.13, including a highest score of 268 against Pakistan at the MCG in 1983/84.

Yallop is passionate about the next generation of young Australians who dream to wear the baggy green

"We need to instill the basic fundamentals to as many junior cricketers as we can," Yallop said. "Cricket formats have changed but the strong emphasis on basics holds strong with me, it's about hard work and good training ethic."

The camp will be held at Apsley reserve on Saturday and Sunday January 18-19 2020, from 9am to 3pm each day.

The owner of Shaun Brown's Cricket Coaching said: "Our aim with the clinics is to provide an excellent learning experience for enthusiastic cricketers between the ages of 7 to 16.

"Our program covers all facets of cricket - 20/20, one day and Test formats, all aimed at improving participants' skills, knowledge and enjoyment of the game."

Over the past 33 years, thousands of participants have improved their skills in all aspects of the game at the regional camps.

"It's fantastic to be able to involve former Test stars in areas that normally don't get that exposure," said Brown, a professional cricket coach since 1986.

All clinics feature the use of video analysis, a comprehensive program and written reports for all who attend.
