Graham Ford has been speaking to Surrey TV after spending his first week at the club meeting and working with the players and coaching staff.
The Head Coach arrived on Monday and told Mark Church that he has enjoyed his first few days at the Kia Oval. Ford commented: “It’s fantastic to be here. It has been quite a long wait since I was appointed, so to get there and meet some of the players and make an official start is really exciting.”
Much of Ford’s time has been spent with his coaching staff which he says has been very beneficial. “I have spent valuable time with the coaches this week, sharing ideas and philosophies and putting plans together for our trip to Cape Town next week.”
The Surrey squad fly to South Africa on Tuesday and the Head Coach feels the Pre-Season tour will be vital to preparations for the new season. “The tour to South Africa will be important because it will give me chance to observe and assess and to start building a relationship with the players”.
