They arrived at the University yesterday morning and were split into two groups for a tour of the university’s sports facilities, after which they had a high intensity batting/fielding session in the ECB indoor centre with Loughborough coaches.

After being put through their paces the boys were given a presentation on how the cricket programme runs at the University.

It was a fantastic day for the Cricket Academy boys and gave them the chance to see if they wanted to take their cricket further when they leave the college.
