Becks started playing cricket at the age of 8 for Shepperton Cricket Club, moving on to play for Surrey at U11. She continued to play at this level until the age of 20 with her career highlight being scoring 79 runs and taking five wickets in a one day cricket match- Surrey v Buckinghamshire. She returned to the Surrey wider squad in the winter of 2017/2018 season, her main skill being a batter in the squad. Playing at club level she plays both ladies and men’s cricket – her focus is as an opening batter in both leagues; as well as a seam bowler , with an important role in the field being a highly motivating member of the team.
As a coach she has coached at Shepperton Cricket Club. She has also coached in the private school sector, running boys cricket In PE and games lessons. Most recently she has been approached by Surrey University to coach their developing ladies team and has taken on a variety of clients for 1-1 coaching.
A Level 2 coach who inspires girls, boys and ladies to play the game and we are delighted to welcome her to HSCC to be our girls and ladies lead coach.
Reny has a lot of experience of coaching cricket and was a force to reckon with from his playing days as a youngster in the Islands of Trinidad & Tobago. He has the passion and the drive to help cricketers who wants to better themselves and he is willing to share his wealth of experience to make a difference to our players within the club.
Reny has been part of the coaching team for the last 5+ years and his desire to make cricketers better has given some of our cricketers the confidence to go onto better things and improve on their performances throughout their time at the club.
Often regarded as a tough task master with a strong and firm voice but at the end of the day, everyone knows he has their best interest at heart.
Adam has over 30 years’ experience of coaching cricket. A Level 2 coach he had helped thousands of young players at clubs and schools in Surrey and has also been a part of the Chance to Shine Programme delivering cricket in local schools.

An orthodox opening batsman and “deceptively straight” bowler through school in South Africa he made the trip to the UK as an overseas player in the Cherwell League. He came for a summer and ended up staying for 3 years. “Playing in that league provided me with an experience I would not have been able to replicate in SA as all the clubs took advantage of the 2 overseas players per team meaning I got to play in the UK against guys from all over the globe. What started out as a volunteer role coaching once a week quickly became several roles at 3 clubs and a school coaching 5 days a weeks which I have thoroughly enjoyed.”
Jason also adds coaching for Surrey to his list of coaching commitments this winter and we are delighted to have him coaching at HSCC. He is a firm believer of games over technique for juniors. No matter the discipline there are games to develop, test and prepare young cricketers.
In addition to these professional coaches there are several parents who are also qualified coaches who all give generously of their time to assist with various age groups.
Steve first played for Horsley on Twinn’s Field aged 10! Having played 1st XI cricket at HSCC for many years and more recently for Surrey over 50s Steve is a quality cricketer. He has three boys, Ben, Frankie and Seb and through helping them with their cricket decided to formalise the coaching he had been giving by undertaking his Level 2. This he did a number of years ago and has since been running not only what is now the U17 age group but was Junior Chairman for 2 years and then Chairman of Cricket in 2018 shaping the player pathway for the Juniors.
Steve is always thinking about cricket, coaching, how to help the boys and new ways of coaching. His enthusiasm is infectious. He believes cricket should be available for all and that playing at a cricket should be fun, challenging at times and an opportunity to make lasting friendships in a local team which is more than the sum of its parts. He certainly sets by example playing in a number of our adult teams as needed as well as for Surrey over 50s.
As Head Physiotherapist for Fulham FC for 8 years Chris spends almost all of his time in the professional sports environment. As a former GB International Gymnast, becoming British Pommel Horse Champion in 1998, he is used to performing to an exceptional standard! No surprise that after a short time of helping with his son Jack’s age group at the club he wanted to do more and undertook the training to become a Level 2 coach. As a coach he generally works with what will be the U17 squad this season as well as managing many of their games, but does also assist with his other son, Ben’s, age group. Chris has also been coaching on the Winter training programme and is a calm encouraging face to all those he coaches, helping them achieve their potential.
