Unsolicited comments from professional cricketers


"Gary and I started working together in April 2015. In my eyes there is no coincidence that my form has improved. For the first time in my career I have had a batting coach who is purely just technical. In one way like a golfer has a swing coach, Gary is that ' swing coach'."
Sir Alastair Cook, former England Captain

"Gary has been innovative, enthusiastic and totally involved in what he is doing. He has been well received by all members of the Australian team and we would utilise his services wherever possible in the future." Read more.
Steve Waugh, former Australian cricket captain

"I have known Gary Palmer as a coach and friend and I have always found his enthusiasm for the game infectious. He has an active cricket mind. Gary has assisted with the pre-season preparation of the professionals at Sussex and his input has been excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Gary."
Peter Moores, former coach Sussex CCC and England

"Having worked with Gary on numerous occasions, I have learnt a tremendous amount about batting. He has not only shown me drills that are required to rectify batting faults but drills to extend batsmen to improve their game. It is such a shame that I didn't have Gary as a coach when I was at the top of my game and still playing first class cricket as I'm sure I would have scored a lot more runs."
Richard Illingworth, Worcestershire and England

"I have had the pleasure of working with Gary on several occasions. He is constantly trying to move players forward using both simple and innovative batting drills. I certainly would have liked to have spent some coaching time with him when I was playing professionally."
David Hemp, Warwickshire & captain Glamorgan CCC

"Gary has always impressed me as an innovative coach with an extensive knowledge. I believe he has the ability to coach players of the highest standard.">
Mick Newell, Director of Cricket Nottinghamshire CCC

"I had the pleasure of working with Gary Palmer as a build up to the new season. Gary introduced me to drills that constantly built up technique and then tested it under pressure situations. The best part of working with Gary was his enthusiasm for the game and his ability solving technical problems. Having played professionally for 15 years and opened the batting for Worcestershire and Gloucestershire his coaching has rekindled my thirst for runs."
Phil Weston, Opening Bat - Gloucestershire CCC

"Gary Palmer's broad knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious. His ideas are innovative. In my capacity as head coach of Middlesex CCC I have used Gary on several occasions. I would fully recommend Gary to anyone looking for a top cricket coach."
John Emburey, Middlesex and England
