He knows fast bowling inside out, so if you want to become a better bowler, I suggest you send your videos to Stuart, he will analyse them and send you back some good, simple technical advice.

I couldn't recommend him highly enough. We worked on so many different things and added so many tricks to my bowling armoury. Anyone out there who is looking to improve their bowling either tactically, technically or even mentally I think hes a great guy to work with.

Sam Curran

I couldn't speak highly enough of him. In terms of a technical bowling coach there is definitely not many better out there.

Barnsey was our bowling coach at Somerset. He was there when we won the Royal London One Day Cup. I found him very knowledgeable, his plans which he gave to our bowlers were amazing and worked really well. Most importantly he makes things very enjoyable.

His all round knowledge of bowling with me as an individual but also as part of a team was second to none. I would highly recommend anyone to work with him.

I have known Stuart Barnes in a professional capacity for 7 years. I personally scouted and trained him to an elite level which allows him to work with England’s Fast Bowlers at all levels.

He is an outstanding individual and bowling coach, in 2010 he was shortlisted and interviewed for the England Bowling Coach role and he has actively coached on the England Performance Programme and during England Lions Tours. He is an active member on the Elite Fast Bowling & Research Group, which is in place to innovate fast bowling technique and coaching methods.

Hi, my name is Barney and I’m a left arm fast bowler. I have worked with Stuart Barnes through the Kent fast bowling programme for the last 2 years and he has helped my bowling come on leaps and bounds to where I was 2 years ago. He has helped improve my pace and given me loads of advice on Strength and Conditioning which means now I am fitter and stronger. Stuart is always checking in to see how I am getting on and I would definitely recommend working with Stuart if you get the chance.

I’ve been working with Stuart Barnes for the last 2 years. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with him. During this time I have certainly started to understand my bowling technique in greater detail and Stuart has helped me develop my bowling over the last two years. Stuart has helped me out whenever I have needed it, I definitely recommend anyone that wants to work with Stuart not to hesitate.

I’ve been working hard over the last few weeks to build consistency in line and length. Having not been coached for several years, I wanted to see if my technique was holding me back. I followed Stuart online for a couple of weeks before signing up for his gold package. His analysis was first class. Rather than point out where I was going wrong, he was able to identify potential causes and suggest small fixes to improve pace and consistency. I’ve been working through the drills that Stuart gave me for a couple of weeks, and my action already is tighter, more efficient and I’m bowling the same pace off 3 steps as I was of a 25 yard run up. I only wish I’d found this earlier and worked on these points sooner. I have already recommended Stuart to several people and will continue to do so. It’s not often that you have the opportunity or access to someone of Stuart’s knowledge or talent to support you in training and practice.

Stuart was recommended to me by my coach who felt he would add value to the work we’d been doing due to his experience at the top of the game and his positive approach. He wasn’t wrong!

Stuart identified three things to work on, one of which instantly made a huge difference to my consistency and helped me take net performance onto the square.

His understanding of the game & of the action is unreal. We spoke for an hour as part of his gold package but I could have asked him questions all day long! He draws on a catalogue of experience and supporting video material to support that makes it very easy to understand his advice, but just as importantly gives you huge confidence in what you’re going to work on.

It’s world class coaching for the everyday cricketer, and I’d recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their game.

I have been working with Stuart now for a few months having had him recommended by a friend at my cricket club. I found the process very straight forward and only required a friend to film a few balls at a training session. Stuart was remarkably quick in analysing the footage and he fed back to me over a video call and then a written summary. He identified three key things to work on and they were all explained very clearly and simply. These were not major overhauls of my bowling but areas where I was losing momentum and efficiency that I would never have realised. They were all explained with a visual demonstration and examples of what to do better. Here Stuart was able to draw on his experience working with first-class cricketers and it was brilliant to get access to someone who works with top level players.

I was given a set of drills to help me with my improvement areas and these were also well explained and thought out, along with being simple and able to be performed in an empty net. Stuart has also been in contact with me a few times since our first call to check how I was getting on and if I had any issues or difficulties which I really liked and I found helpful and showed that he was willing to go above and beyond the one call. I also feel that if I have any other issues with my bowling Stuart would be happy to talk through them.

Having focused on the small tweaks and drills my consistency improved and the ball was zipping through to the keeper more. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to work on their bowling and improve their cricket.
