PETER ZANZOTTERA – NORTHERN DISTRICTS CRICKET ASSOCIATION
"I have known Ben Williams for over a decade, and have been lucky enough to observe him at work closely over this time through both my former role as Director of Coaching for Counties Manukau Cricket Association, and in my current capacity as the Junior High Performance Coordinator for Northern Districts Cricket Association. Over this time Ben has made a positive contribution to thousands of cricketers of every age and skill level.
As a person Ben is great to deal with. He is rare in that he relates as well to primary school children, as he does to the numerous international cricketers that he regularly works with. I feel this is because Ben is passionate about making a difference to all areas of cricket development from the grass roots right through to the players who aspire to be world class. His genuine desire to progress those around him is infectious, and leaves a positive impression on all those he deals with. Ben has never been anything less than professional, friendly and thorough in all that he does.
Here at Northern Districts Cricket we value Ben very highly due to the skills he brings and the person he is. He has been involved in taking our junior teams since 2008, is a key member of our Network Coach programme, and is utilised as a resource coach in the Northern Knights environment. Ben and his academy are integral parts of the Northern Districts cricketing landscape, and I have no hesitation in lending my support in whichever way possible to Ben’s work from grassroots up.”
