Richard Blakey (YCCC & England)
I have known Mark since well before my professional cricket career with Yorkshire CCC started. Gilly is a ferocious competitor but plays the game in the right spirit. He is a match winner and has turned many a game in both the county and league arena with his powerful, exciting stroke play. He has undoubted knowledge of the game and an infectious enthusiasm and work ethic, giving him some of the most important attributes required by a top class coach.I would like to wish Gilly every success in his new venture.
