"As a County we have been delighted with the response and feedback to the Sedbergh Magic development courses that we have run for both players and coaches. Having attended all of them myself it's always fantastic to hear coaches and players talking about how they're going to use what they've learned in training/games and they can't wait to take part in the next course. I would highly recommend attendance if a course is available near you.."
