CRICKET-MAD Daniel Oldham is celebrating after being invited back for coaching with Aussie superstar Shane Warne's bowling mentor.

Daniel, 19, was selected by the England and Wales Cricket Board six years ago to train with Terry Jenner and has been invited back every year since.

Daniel, who hails from Folksworth but plays cricket for Godmanchester, said: "I'm really looking forward to attending again this year. It is a great opportunity to work with the best and get noticed."

About 100 young players aged between 12 and 21 attend the summer camp each year to be taught the art of leg spin bowling by the former Cambridgeshire bowler who also played internationally for Australia.
