Academy Duo Named in Young Lions Squad

The Lancashire Academy duo of George Balderson and Jack Morley have both been named in the England Young Lions squad for the first half of the winter which includes domestic training camps in the UK and a 20-day training camp in Bangalore, India.

The second half of the winter sees the England U19s take on Bangladesh U19 in all three formats of the game, leaving on January 19.

Jon Lewis, the Young Lions Head Coach, said: “It’s a high potential group of players and I am excited by the prospect of them working with this set of staff and the challenging conditions that India will present.

“I think it’s one of the best parts of the job, being able to provide an experience that adds value on top of what the players normally receive at their counties.

 

“It’s been hugely enjoyable this year to see Harry Brook, Will Jacks, Dillon Pennington and Ethan Bamber progress from representing us in last year’s World Cup to impressing in their county 1st XI.

"I know from having chatted to them that they felt their time with the Young Lions improved them as players and that’s an example of the value our pathway can add to young players.

“I reminded this squad that it wasn’t that long ago at all that Sam Curran and Ollie Pope were sat in the same seats as them. They both showed the characteristics of players who wanted to become international cricketers and their speed of ascent since has been testament to their hard work. I’m looking forward to developing this group so that they can start their own journey on that path.”
