Super six training with professional cricket clubsNovember 11th, 2020
Six cricketers at Monmouth School for Boys have been selected in the academy systems of two professional clubs.
Five boys have been chosen for the Glamorgan Academy set-up and one for the Gloucestershire Cricket Board (GCB)’s junior programme.
Harry, 18, is being joined in the Glamorgan Academy by Sam and 15-year-old Henry.
This will be Harry’s third year as part of the Glamorgan programme, and the first for both 17-year-old leg spinner, Sam, and Henry.
All three boys are scheduled to attend two sessions a week at Sophia Gardens, the home of Glamorgan.
Zac, 13, and Roahn, 14, have both been selected for the Glamorgan junior academy.
Zac was part of the academy programme last year, while this is the first time that Roahn has been included.
Zac and Roahn are both set to receive specialist coaching from the Glamorgan team one evening a week throughout the winter.
Fifteen-year-old off-spinner, Owen, has been picked as part of Gloucestershire Cricket Board’s junior programme after his impressive performances with bat and ball last summer.
Owen will receive specialist spin coaching from senior professional Gloucestershire players during the winter.
“This fantastic news for everyone at Monmouth School for Boys,” said Andy Jones, Director of Sport and Master in charge of Cricket.
“We are very proud of all six boys and would like to congratulate them on their selection.
“We will now be supporting the boys every step of the way as they strive to make their mark in the academy systems of these two established professional cricket clubs.”
