Berkshire Cricket has been running various courses over the Autumn to provide training and development for boys and girls from U10 through to U17. 360 boys have attended the U1- to U12 Development courses, 109 Girls have attended either a U11/13 development or a U11/13/15 technical session and 185 boys and girls have attended specialist sessions over this time.
The primary aim of the development and technical courses that the boys U10 to U12 and girls U11 to U15 have been attending over the previous 8 weeks has been to improve the basic cricket skill sets of those respective age groups in Berkshire. We have been extremely impressed by the commitment, willingness to learn and playing ability that we have witnessed during this time. We have had a very close look at all of the players in the respective courses over the 8 sessions and have selected a total of 120 girls and 315 boys that we will be invited to be part of a winter development Squad training with the Berkshire County Coaches starting in January 2018.
Please note that the selected squads are for the Winter Training Programme which is part of the Berkshire Cricket Player Pathway Programme, and does not guarantee selection for the Summer Match County and Development squads. Invitations to the winter training program for selected players will be sent out in the forthcoming week.
Many congratulations if your name appears on the selected squad lists. If you have missed out this time, please keep on playing and enjoying your cricket. The door to County selection is never closed and a number of players, who we saw performing well for their schools and clubs, were brought into squads last year. Regardless of whether you have been selected or not, we would like to congratulate you on the hard work and the positive attitude you have shown us over the entire process, you should feel very proud of yourself.
