Cross and Coleman Awarded CS Retainers
Two of Scotland’s up-and-coming stars have been awarded Cricket Scotland development retainers - Frederick Coleman and Matthew Cross.
Both players featured in the Scotland side which finished 11th at this year’s Under 19 Cricket World Cup, have been awarded deals which will ensure their development is managed in a partnership between Cricket Scotland and their respective counties and universities.
Coleman is currently with Warwickshire while studying and playing for Oxford MCCU, while Cross is at Loughborough playing for their MCCU side and is committed to Nottinghamshire for next summer.
Cricket Scotland Performance Director Andy Tennant said “We believe both Freddie and Matthew have outstanding potential and we are committed to working in partnership with both players’ counties and universities to ensure that their development is properly managed.
There are many demands placed on young players at this stage of their development and we want to make sure that the best young Scottish players are given every chance to be successful in the long term. We believe the development retainer they have been awarded will help make this happen. Hopefully both players will press their claims for international representation over the coming year."
