A talented Preparatory School cricketer has been rewarded for an exceptional season with a regional development squad selection.
Cieran Milligan, a Year 5 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, will now be part of the Eryri Cricket Wales (National Development Centre) set-up, and is the youngest member awarded a place on the programme.
The gifted 10-year-old earned his place in the squad after impressing selectors during a series of trials, and he will now begin training during the winter to hone his skills ahead of a busy series of fixtures next summer.
He was put forward for the trials by coaches at Mochdre Cricket Club after he aided their U11 side to another season of fine success alongside fellow pupils Biv Gilmartin, James Gilman and George Watkins
Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “This is a wonderful achievement for Cieran and one that he worked very hard to achieve.
“He is multi-talented in a number of different sporting areas, and this experience is sure to aid his development considerably as he looks to progress his game in the future.
“His work ethic will ensure he gets the very most out of the sessions and we wish Cieran well in his efforts with the squad.”
