Six Lancashire boys set for U17s Super 4s
Six Lancashire youngsters will represent the North in this year's Under 17s Super-4 Competition in Loughborough this week.
George Lavelle (the player of the tournament in last year’s Bunbury Festival for Under-15s) is joined by Mo Ahmad, Jamie Crawley, Sam Dorsey, Jack Morley and Rehan Udwadia.
The Super-4s week has a different structure this year. The teams will again play each other in 50-over matches over the first three days of competition, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. But instead of a Finals Day on the Saturday, the champions will be determined by the final placings in the league table – leaving Saturday clear for a separate T20 competition.
James Taylor, the former Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and England batsman, will speak to the players when they gather in Loughborough on Monday, and the cricket will be watched by a number of England’s lead coaches as well as Young Lions selectors and scouts, raising the stakes for the players involved.
