ECB City Cup

Giving players who have missed their opportunity a fighting chance.

The City Cup is an ECB national programme designed to give players, who may have missed their opportunity or have never been given the opportunity, a chance to show their talents and get a taste of professional coaching.

In 2018, YCF were responsible for organising both the Leeds and Bradford teams and hosted indoor trials, were the teams were formed. Both teams then competed in the regional rounds, playing Manchester and Newcastle.

Leeds players Shamsullah Dost and Jack Mcgahan and Bradford players Hamza Iqbal and Danny Ahmed also got the opportunity to go to Lords to represent their teams. They took part in two development days which included talks on nutrition, fitness, fielding and skills and scenarios.
