Looking forward to 2021
2020 has of course been a challenging year for everyone and much of it we will want to forget but there have been positives. I became a Grandfather for one, which is crazy I know!
Anyway less about my age, Cricket.
The last few years has seen us expand our range markedly with our own unique products and designs. Our mission to provide a one-stop shop for the needs of Cricket Coaches and players is not at an end and we have joined with our Indian Distributor Omtex to provide high quality training balls, gloves and merino socks. We have added their excellent Bowling Machine ball which we trialled for 18 months prior to adding to our range.
We pride ourselves in being , in some ways, trailblazers, taking new ideas and running with them and we aim to keep doing this where there is value to Cricket.
To this end we are proud to announce that the Swinga Technique Ball is joining the Katchet stable in 2021 and we don't do this lightly so I recommend you have a look at this excellent product.
Lastly whatever kind of year you have had all the best for 2021 It's gonna be better.
Stay safe and Just Katchet.
Ledgends Ltd (Katchet) was formed in 2004 by two Scotsmen, Colin Smith and Neil MacRae. Sportsmen, school friends and eventually International team mates, they have both had experience in all manner of sports, from Swimming to Rugby, Football to Tennis and Hockey to Cricket. It's fair to say that Sport was the main ingredient during a youth that was rudely interrupted by class rooms, lecture theatres and at the time a seemingly unimportant requirement to earn a living. But as long as they could play sport then they were happy.
They traveled across the world to play cricket - Neil to South Africa and Colin to Australia - but always returned every summer to play for their club side in Aberdeen and the national team. Huge believers in the saying ‘You only get out what you put in’ they were mostly on the training ground long after the others had gone home.
Both now retired from playing International Cricket, Neil with 31 caps and Colin with 181 they stay involved in the game they love with Neil an ECB Level 4 coach while Colin languishes at level 2, but can be occasionally seen on Sky Sports spouting his opinion as a pundit!
They are committed to providing quality, innovative cricket coaching products to enhance everyone’s enjoyment and performance. Now In partnership with Fusion Sports, Omtex, Zwingo and Swinga Cricket.
Neil is now an International coach with Jersey having had successful stints with Scotland and Austria.
Both Colin and Neil hope that their products can add to your performance and enjoyment - while training and playing.
