Elmbridge Borough State School Academy ready for action
The Twenty20 Community Cricket Elmbridge Borough State School Academy squad have once again been put through their paces at their weekly coaching session at Cardinal Newman School in Hersham.
The sixteen players who make up the squad have been training since September following selection from nearly 40 players last summer.
The players come from a mixture of neighbouring clubs including, East Molesey, Walton-on-Thames and Weybridge.
They will be playing against the four other borough teams, Kingston-upon-Thames, Mole Valley, Richmond and Sutton in the summer with matches at Ewell Cricket Club.
The teams have been sponsored by the Denis Jacobs Youth Cricket Trust (DJYCT) which was set up in the memory of Denis Jacobs whose leadership and industry in establishing Surrey's age group coaching scheme, set the stage for a generation of exciting young players such as Graham Thorpe and the Bicknell brothers to emerge.
The Trust aims to: -
Improve youth cricket, supporting talented amateur young cricketers to reach their potential within Surrey and the surrounding areas.
Be inclusive of all young cricketers regardless of gender, race, religion or background.
