Wiltshire Cricket

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 12, 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 indoor two to one coaching programme that is then followed by a county trial to select a final squad for the season. This squad will then be invited to attend 12 hours of outdoor squad training to help prepare for their matches during the season.

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.
