Age-group Inter-Regional Championships 2013

24 May

This Sunday (26th May) will see the first U15 inter-regional match of 2013 take place between the Eastern Knights and Western Warriors. 

The same teams are also involved in the opening U18 fixture on June 13th.  A revamped inter- regional championship was introduced in 2012 at U15 and U18 level, designed to see the best young players in the country compete against each other in different match formats, and ultimately push forward their claims for Scotland age-group representative honours. 

Unfortunately both competitions were severely affected by the weather last season with the U15 residential festival completely washed out along with the T20 festivals at both age groups.  As a result, in 2013 all U15 fixtures will be spread out across the season with teams playing four 50 over matches against each other.  At U18 level teams will play a two day fixture, two 50 over fixtures and will finish the season with a T20 festival day.

Unlike the senior Pro-Series competition which has been reduced to two teams in 2013, the youth inter-regional tournament will remain along traditional lines with the Western Warriors, Caledonian Highlanders and Eastern Knights vying for the trophies.

Cricket Scotland Performance Development Manager Craig Wright said “We were looking forward to seeing the increased competition between the regional teams last year, but unfortunately the programme was decimated by the weather.  With a bit of luck from the elements this season the enhanced programme will enable all our best young players to have the opportunity to compete against each other and put their names in the hat for national selection.  It will also develop their match play experiences to go alongside the work they have done in their training sessions over the winter”.

Caledonian Highlanders manager Kevin Davies added, “'Following a good winter programme the Highlanders are raring to go and relishing the challenge with a competitive squad who are keen to show off their skill set and push for national selection”.
