County Champions Warwickshire launch open cricket trials
Warwickshire County Cricket Club is giving talented young cricketers aged, 18 to 25 years old, an opportunity to trial for its men’s and women’s teams.
Taking place at the Edgbaston Cricket Centre on the evening of Monday 20 December, players must register in advance by completing a form on edgbaston.com and a time will subsequently be allocated to trial in-front of Warwickshire High Performance Manager Paul Greetham and men’s Second Team Coach Ian Westwood.
Paul Greetham said: “Whilst we have an extensive talent identification and scouting system across multiple leagues, schools and colleges in our region, players can sometimes come to attention through unorthodox routes.
“We want to give all talented players in our region an opportunity to reach the highest standard of the game possible and won’t hesitate to give further training and playing opportunities to players who impress.”
The open trials will take place in the nets at the Edgbaston Cricket Centre and times will be allocated to all batters, bowlers and all-rounders who register.
Warwickshire has held open trials twice in recent years. The first session discovered Coventry-born fast bowler Grant Thornton, who made two First Class and four List A appearances for the Bears in 2017 and currently represents Birmingham & District Premier League champions Berkswell.
