The Week Ahead
This week we start base testing for the Chessington School Academy applicants. It's been great to see so many youngsters applying to be part of the scheme. We will be testing them all on batting, bowling and fielding disciplines so we can see where they are at currently and monitor improvements over the coming months and years.
Tuesday sees the start of the MCC Foundation Hub we are running at RGS Guildford School. Around 80 youngsters aged U12-U15 are trialling for 48 places in the free scheme which will start the following week for 10 weeks. We are really looking forward to see what talent is on show.
On Wednesday our MD, in his role as CEO of the England Cricket Association for the Deaf Charity, will be travelling to Bradford to meet the Yorkshire Cricket Board and discuss summer matches for ECAD Yorkshire and ECAD North teams.
Finally this week, our Academy Coach Ed Belger starts his level 3 training. We wish him well with that.
