Shot at the Pros
’ as a feature on Cricket AM
, the feature was so successful that Sky will be featuring again this year.
A promotional video can be seen by following the link here: http://skysports.brightcove.com.edgesuite.net/165012893/165012893_2381474701001_CRICKETAM-PROMO.mp4
Yorkshire and Warwickshire are on board for this year’s competition. They will each have one of the two winners to train with them in early July and to have the chance to take part there is a trial day at Loughborough on the 14th June where the 10 best entrants get whittled down to the winning two.
It is really easy to enter. All potential candidates have to do is record a short video on their phones telling us why they deserve their “shot at the pros” with a few details about their cricketing ability and achievements.
If those wishing to take part then head to www.skysports.com/cricketam
they will see details on how to upload their video and enter the competition. It was a huge success last year and our two winners - Mubasher Hassan and Will Purser really enjoyed the time they spent with Kent and Middlesex CCC.
I think it’s a great opportunity for any young cricketer to potentially train with some professional players.
