Twelve cricket aces picked for Wales and GloucestershireMay 28th, 2021
Twelve talented cricketers at Monmouth School for Boys will be thriving under the guidance of professional clubs this summer.
Eleven pupils have been picked to play for the Welsh Age Groups, which are now the responsibility of Glamorgan County Cricket Club.
Glamorgan and Cricket Wales are working closely across various strands of the talent pathway.
And one student has been chosen for Gloucestershire County Cricket Club’s Emerging Players’ Programme (EPP).
First-team captain, Harry, Hugo, Henry, Sam and Ed have been selected for Wales Under-18s.
Roahn and Noah have been picked for Wales Under-15s, while Zac is playing for Wales Under-14s.
Tom and John have been chosen for Wales Under-13s, while Olly is in the Wales Under-13s Development Squad.
Owen has been named in the Gloucestershire Under-18s squad. Players who shine in the EPP may progress on to the next tier of the club’s talent pathway, which filters to the Gloucestershire Academy.
All the boys have benefited from high level coaching at the school from Director of Sport, Mr Andy Jones, former Glamorgan and England opener, Mr Steve James, who went to Monmouth School for Boys, level three-qualified cricket coach, Mr Callum Bassett-Jones and former England A, Surrey and Durham spinner, Mr James Boiling, who teaches History.
