Boys Winter Performance Programme 2018-2019 - Nominations now being accepted

Wiltshire Cricket are pleased to announce that we are now accepting nominations from clubs for the district winter coaching programmes being run across the county starting January 2019.

Attached below you will find:

Who can clubs nominate?

While the attached letter fully explains the trials process, the important information is that we would ask that clubs nominate players for district trials only.

In a change to previous procedures, county trials will take place after the district trials.  However this means that county players do not need to attend district trials.

County players will be fast tracked to their own county trials as a matter of course.

Note that this nomination request specifically relates to the BOYS programmes only.  A separate request will be sent out later in the summer with regards to the girls trials.

Winter programme changes

While the changes to the winter programme should not have an influence on who clubs nominate, the summary of the changes to the winter programmes are:

  • A move away from separate district/county programmes at Under 10s level.
  • A slight change of format for match play for the Under 13s district programme.
  • District trials to now be administrated centrally by Wiltshire Cricket.
  • County trials to take place after the district trials are completed.
  • The adoption of ECB junior formats across Under 10s and 11s match play.

What do we require from clubs?

As stated, Wiltshire Cricket will be informing all players who have been nominated for district trials directly.  To ensure the accuracy of this, we ask clubs to only use the attached nomination form.

Notification by any other format will result in data having to be transposed onto this central list of players.  Any transposition might result in information being inaccurately included which could result in trials notification not being received by the child or the child’s family.

When do we need to return this nomination form?

All nominations are required by Monday 13th August to allow us sufficient time in which to notify players of their trials details.

To confirm, clubs will not be required to advise players of trials information.

Completed nomination forms need to be returned directly back to Ali Goddard by e-mail – ali.goddard@wiltshirecricket.co.uk
