Cricket Scotland has awarded development retainer contracts to two of its brightet talents, Freddie Coleman and Matthew Cross.
Both players featured during the Under-19 World Cup last year, where Scotland finished 11th and both are attached to counties and MCC University squads.
Coleman is with Warwickshire and Oxford MCCU while Cross is with Nottinghamshire and Loughborough MCCU.
"We believe both Freddie and Matthew have outstanding potential and we are committed to working in partnership with both players’ counties and universities to ensure that their development is properly managed," Cricket Scotland Performance Director Andy Tennant said.
"There are many demands placed on young players at this stage of their development and we want to make sure that the best young Scottish players are given every chance to be successful in the long term.
"We believe the development retainer they have been awarded will help make this happen. Hopefully both players will press their claims for international representation over the coming year."
