Herefordshire Cricket has developed a vision and strategy for the development of players across our county. The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the pathway structure and to explain the vision and objectives which underpin the Herefordshire Cricket Pathway from U11 to First Class Cricket.
The intention of the player pathway is to provide players with the best possible pathway experience, whilst ensuring that players are given the best opportunity to develop and challenge themselves.
All First-Class counties must have a direct link with a National County and Herefordshire Cricket is now partnered with Worcestershire Cricket. All players can now be dual registered and play for either county.
Following new England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) directives Herefordshire Cricket will run boys age groups at U11, U12, U14, U16 and U18’s. Herefordshire Cricket is now in year 3 of its Emerging Player Programme (EPP) for a selected group of players from the U14-U18 age groups. Herefordshire Cricket will also run girls age groups at U11, U13 and U15. Talented over age girls, will have the opportunity to be selected for the Worcestershire pathway.
