NCU Development Tour to South Africa

Instonians cricketers (back l-r) Andrew Forbes, James Hunter, (front) James Metcalf and Bradley McNamara have been included in the Northern Cricket Union squad that will be heading to Cape Town in the New Year for a series of matches and coaching. Between now and then the squad will be training at the University of Ulster’s Jordanstown Sports Centre where they were pictured celebrating their selection.

The Northern Cricket Union has announced details of its planned Youth Development tour to South Africa.
Thirty boys in two squads and ten support staff will make the trip to Cape Town departing 26th March and returning 5th April next year.

As Alan Waite, NCU vice-chairman, who will act as manager to one of the squads explained:
“… The touring party will be pitched at two levels; firstly we are looking at the Under 15 age group and then the Under 17 age group…”
Alan has enlisted the help of Neil Watson, a former Chairman of Western Province to put together an itinerary, together with accommodation and games.

Alan went on to say:
“…The key thing is the level that the tour is pitched at; we want this to be competitive and the level of competition to step up as the tour progresses. We will also be staying in a complex called City Lodge, Grand West in Cape Town, which effectively has everything on-site and will serve to keep the whole party together. I believe that having it at the start of the season is the right timing. The players will be doing a lot of work as a squad sessions throughout the winter and this will give a real focus to that, plus they will be able to take the learning from the tour and apply it directly in the new season at home.”
