Representative Cricket: County
Wiltshire Cricket has county boys squads at under 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17 age groups. The county girls have squads at under 11, 13, 15 and 17 with more information available here.
In terms of selection, county trials are held annually in the Autumn, a week prior to the district trials. Individual county age group managers and coaches are responsible for organising these trials and will invite the best players from the previous summer's matches to these trials. Following the district trials the county age group coaches will liaise with district head coaches to decide upon final selections for the county winter coaching programme. It may be that following the autumn county and district trials some players from the district trials will be selected for the county winter coaching programme. Also, if players attending a county trial are unsuccessful in being selected for the county winter coaching programme they will automatically be placed in their appropriate district's winter coaching programme.
The county winter coaching programme itself involves a 12 week group coaching programme. Players selected for the winter programme will automatically form part of the summer squad so that preparation for the season can begin for that group of players from the moment they are selected for the winter programme. However, once the season arrives, the county manager and coach may choose to add to their squad from the higher performing district players.
With regards to the summer match play programme the county under 10s, 11s, 12s and 13s play in friendly matches and festivals. The county under 14s, 15s and 17s are entered in to the ECB national competitions.
Wiltshire Cricket recognises special performances from our talented young cricketer's across all our representative age groups. Player of the Year awards are recognised and at Under 13 level and below, awards are made for fifties and taking 4 wickets. At the Under 14 age group and above, awards are made for scoring centuries and taking 5fer's.
Awards are held alongside the Wiltshire Cricket OSCA's presentation evening.
