Fifteen TS pupils have been selected for District and County Cricket winter training squads after going through a demanding selection process at trials.
Selected for the County were Oscar Samuel, Isaac Finch, Alex Chaffey, Finley Cooling, Ollie Heard, Ben Chaffey, Henry Weatherill, Max Fletcher, Ed Eminson and Travis Green. Selected for the District were Seb Malley, Archie Billings, Harrison Barrett and Dan Edwards. Some players had previously played at these levels but for many it was the first time to get this external recognition.
Pete Sanderson, the new Director of Cricket, attended many of the trials and he commented: “I enjoyed observing the trials and I am delighted with the number of players being selected in representative squads. I cannot wait to work with this player group and all cricketers in the school.”
Players will also get specialist coaching from Marcus Trescothick, Head of Cricket Development, as well as attending training sessions at the Cooper Associates County Ground from January.
