Two St Johnston players are included on a 23-man Ireland U13 panel named by Cricket ireland for the Cubs Winter Training Programme.
Scott Macbeth and Harry Pearson from the Railway Road outfit are named in the panel.
The winter training programme consists of small-group coaching sessions in each union and National Weekends at North County Indoor Centre and Bready Indoor Centre.
The programme runs from January to April 2018 and each aspect of the programme is vital to the development of these players, the players will develop further, play with and against the best players in this age group, and learn new techniques.
Callum Atkinson is leading the newly-rebranded programme and said: “The news of Cricket Ireland’s Test status has brought us into a new and exciting era for the game.
“The Cubs coaching team is looking forward to supporting this group of talented players who will hopefully have the ambition and the opportunity to play Senior International cricket.”Tags:
