WOMENS: Nine Sussex players selected for EWDP Under-19 Week19-Aug-2013
In the past Sussex have produced some very talented young cricketers to go on and play at the highest level, such as Sarah Taylor and Holly Colvin who started their career at Junior County Cricket before working with Keith Greenfield on the Academy and then being selected for England.
Again, Sussex continue to produce some more talented cricketers to follow in Sarah & Holly’s footsteps, with as many as NINE players selected for the England Women’s Development Programme Under-19 week, which held this week at Wellington College.
The EWDP week (formally the Junior Super 4’s) see’s the best 36 Under-19 players from around the Country play in three teams where they will play against one another and a boy's County side over three days in 50 over and Twenty20 format.
The nine Sussex players selected are, Georgia Adams, Izzy Collis, Freya Davies, Abi Freeborn, Chiara Green, Izi Noakes, Sophie Parnell, Paige Scholfield (pictured) and Rebecca Silk (reserve).
This will be Adams, Green, Noakes and Parnell’s final year in the EWDP U19s and they will be looking for a place in the England Academy during the winter.
Sussex also produced three Under-15s, who were recently selected to take part in the EWDP U15 week, Ellen Burt, Anna Harris and Tara Norris.
Sussex Women’s Director of Cricket, Charlotte Burton said, “It is great that at Sussex we are still able to produce high quality and a good number of players at England level. It is all down to the hard work by the girls during the winter and the summer and their desire to play at the highest level.
"It is vitally important that we keep producing a good standard of players not just for England but to keep us as one of the leading Counties in the Country as well as helping the girls reach their dream.”
