Ryan Buckley, an ECB Advanced Coach, joined Sherborne School as Director of Cricket Coaching in August 2023. As a player, Ryan represented Durham CCC, winning the LV County Championship in 2013, before retiring in 2015 to pursue a coaching career. Ryan has experience working within performance (Durham Cricket, Somerset CCC, Dorset CCC & Western Storm) and development (Millfield School & Hong Kong) environments during his coaching career.

The cricket programme at Sherborne runs through the academic year, including a pre-season camp during the Easter holidays to help prepare the boys for the summer term. There is a weekly house indoor cricket competition for the boys to develop who are outside the winter performance programme, alongside coaching the Prep school during the winter months. The holistic programme is designed to challenge the boys on and off the field.

On a Wednesday afternoon, the cricket scholars have an individually designed programme to allow them to reach their individual potential.

Ryan lives in Blandford with his partner, Kieran and his German Pointer, Billy.
