Academy squad named for Shrewsbury School Festival
Academy Director Gary Yates has named a twelve man Academy squad for the Shrewsbury School Festival (12/13/14 July) this week.
Lancashire Academy's clash against Durham earlier in the summer was rained off, but Yates is looking forward to seeing his squad in action together.
"I'm really looking forward to the week ahead with the squad. We've got some really exciting young players and a number of them have already featured for the Second XI this season.
"It's a real opportunity for the players to compare themselves against other aspiring First Class cricketers from other Academies. Throughout the week lets hope we can play a brand of exciting and aggressive cricket."
All matches are 50 overs per side (international rules) and are played in white kit with a red ball.
Tue 12th v Northants, start 12pm on pitch 1
Wed 13th v Durham, start 11am on pitch 2
Thurs 14th v Shropshire, start 11am on pitch 2
