For the first time, as part of a new ECB County Partnership Agreement, Glamorgan Cricket will be running and managing the summer age group programme. The team will still be known as Wales but will operate as a section of Glamorgan's expanded pathway, while Cricket Wales will manage and run the regional and winter training programmes.
"We're excited by this new partnership," said Head of Talent Development at Glamorgan, Richard Almond. "We look forward to working with Cricket Wales to develop the next generation of Welsh cricket stars.
"There are a number of highly talented youngsters in the Welsh set-up, and we want to help provide them with the platform to flourish and develop as both young cricketers and people.
"We've already seen a number of Welsh players and academy products make their Glamorgan debuts in recent history, and we are hoping to continue that strong tradition of providing Glamorgan and the fanbase with local talent.”
Cricket Wales Head of Talent Pathway, Matt Thompson added, "the pathway partnership is a fantastic opportunity for our youngsters – under the watchful eye of both organisations it will give them the very best opportunity to optimise their potential and make Wales proud.”
