Middlesex CCC players named in EDP & EWDP squads

over 8 years ago | Uncategorised

Congratulations go to a number of young Middlesex CCC cricketers who have been named within the Under 17's EDP and EWDP squads.

The selected Middlesex CCC players are as follows:

EDP squad: Jack Bruce, Arthur Godsal, Max Holden and Andrew Thomas

EWDP squad: Maia Bouchier, Sophia Dunkley and Anna Nicholls

Ninety-four of the most talented young players from across the country will take part in the annual England Development Programme (EDP) Under-17s Super 4s and England Women’s Development Programme (EWDP) Super 3s competitions next week.

The best under-17 male cricketers will come together at the National Cricket Performance Centre (NCPC) in Loughborough to play a round-robin 50-over competition, with players selected to represent four geographical regions: London & East, Midlands, North and South West.  The matches – which will be played from Tuesday 25th August to Saturday 29th August – offer the players the opportunity to show off their skills in front of watching EDP coaches and selectors, as they aim to make their first step onto the England cricket pathway.

England Development Programme Chairman of Selectors, David Graveney, said:

“The EDP Under-17s Super 4s competition is always a great occasion and the wealth of young talent coming through never ceases to amaze and excite in equal measure.  It’s a fantastic opportunity for the players to step out of their “county bubble” and challenge themselves in a different environment and a pressurised situation.”

Former England women’s all-rounder and current Middlesex CCC Women's Player Coach Beth Morgan will be on hand to help to develop the next generation of female talent when she takes charge of one of the three England Women’s Development Programme (EWDP) Super 3s teams at Wellington College next week.  From Tuesday (25th August) to Thursday (27th August) the teams will play a series of 50-over matches, finishing with a day of T20 cricket on Friday (28th August). 

ECB Director of England Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said:

“The England Women’s Development Programme is the first rung of our talent development ladder for these young players as they embark on realising a dream of one day making their England debut.  The opportunities within the women’s game are greater than ever before, and the structures from the grassroots upwards are constantly evolving and improving.  The annual EWDP Super 3s competition is an important part of our talent identification process, and I wish all the girls well as they strive to make a positive impression next week.”
