Applications now invited for the 10th year.

We are pleased to announce the continuation of the Player Development Programme, now in its tenth year, and seek nominations from Member and Associate Member clubs. The Programme will broadly follow the successful format of previous years, the details of which are as follows:

PROGRAMME AIMED AT Boys and Girls in playing ages in 2018 between U13 and U18 inclusive. (Nominations outside of this age range cannot be considered).

CURRENT ABILITY LEVEL: Playing regularly at club level and aspiring to, or already at, District or Representative Level.

NEW VENUE:  St Bede’s Catholic High School (Sports Centre), St Annes Rd, Ormskirk. L39 4TA

DATES AND TIMES: 10 Consecutive Saturdays from 13 January to 17 March, Two groupings based on age from 2.00 to 4.00 and 4.00 to 6.00. Note that groupings are subject to change according to progress throughout the programme.

DELIVERY:The programme will be delivered by a combination of experienced ECB Level 3 Coaches and led again by Steve Critchley LCB County Age Group Coach and ECB Coach Tutor.

COSTS: The costs of the programme (£5800) are primarily met out of the fines paid by clubs during the 2017 season. However, to ensure continued commitment throughout the programme, clubs will be levied with a charge of £50 per player. This will be included in the club's pre-season statement.

NOMINATIONS: Each of the 42 Member and Associate Member Clubs is invited to nominate one player to take part by no later than Friday 3 November. Clubs may also nominate a second individual (clearly marked) and these will be considered should any places be available after the closing date.

HOW TO NOMINATE: Email Steve Critchley with the following details: Club, Name, DoB, Primary Skill (bat bowl pace spin wk) Playing Level (club-district-representative) together with a contact email and phone number of the nominated player.
