Phil Weston
Phil WestonConsultant
Phil acts as a Consultant for Mintridge advising on all strategic aspects, most notably in engaging with ambassadors and potential partners from the Corporate World. Phil runs the Cricket division in the United Kingdom for TLA Worldwide. TLA is a leading Athlete Management and Sports Marketing business based in the UK, the USA and Australia. With access to over 900 current athletes, some of the leading corporate brands and excellent relationships with Governing Bodies in many sports, TLA are well placed to assist in Mintridge’s quest for strategic growth.

As a former first class cricketer himself – he played for Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Derbyshire over a 17 year career from 1991-2007 – Phil fully understands the challenges elite athletes face and the importance of providing a strong support network for them as they transition from a playing career into the mainstream. This is a central element to Mintridge’s use of ambassadors throughout their programmes.

Patrick Latham
Patrick LathamProgramme and Events Manager
Patrick was thrilled to be able to join the Mintridge team in April 2017 as Programme & Events Manager.
Patrick’s history is in education. He was Director of Sport at St John’s College School in Cambridge and also Director of Cricket at Bedford Prep School. He currently coaches hockey and cricket at Oakham School, alongside running his own business as a graphic designer and illustrator from his family home in Oakham. Patrick’s sporting background is in cricket, having played the bulk of his career with Cambridgeshire CCC, with Somerset 2nd XI in 1999 and touring with MCC to Ghana and The Gambia in early 2003. He now plays at Uppingham CC in the Leicestershire Cricket League.
As an educationalist, Patrick loves nothing more than to see young people having an opportunity, seeing them progress and ultimately realising their potential, succeeding at which ever level they achieve within their chosen sport. Personally, he has a great love of sport with a particular interest in Eventing, although he possess a very limited equestrian ability!
