History in the making: College take on first ever Fixture
The Yorkshire Cricket College are set to play their inaugural fixture against St.Peters this Wednesday, 2nd May, at their home ground, New Rover Cricket Club.
Pre-match, students will be presented with their playing cap before being led onto the field by captain James Rogers.
The college, which now has a cohort of 16, began in September 2017. Students are based at Emerald Headingley Stadium where they study for their Level 3 in Sport as well as training three times a week.
In just the first 6 months of attending the college, students have trained alongside Yorkshire’s first team, had guest speakers from professional cricket backgrounds and received a range of work experience opportunities from groundsman ship to strength and conditioning with Yorkshire CCC.
In May, they are due to take on a range of home and away matches, against St.Peters, Woodhouse Grove School and Myrescough college.
“It’s an exciting week for the college. The students have worked incredibly hard both on and off pitch and are raring go. The lucky XI selected will hopefully be the first in a long line of students to represent the Yorkshire Cricket College on the pitch” Nick Robinson
