Do you put forward players to be assessed for county and other regional sides?

Yes, if our coaching staff and team managers think they are of the required standard and parents wish them to be put forward, we nominate players for trials (both boys and girls) with Surrey and London Schools Cricket Association.

Approximately 5% of our players are currently in the performance squads of either Surrey or London Schools.

If your player wants to know what it takes to get picked by either Surrey or London Schools, you might want to take a look at the assessment guide used by Surrey. In considering who to nominate, we use this as a guide, but also we're looking for players with a combination of the following:

  • Highly passionate and enthusiastic about the game
  • Exceptional all-round cricket skills - batting, bowling, fielding
  • Understanding the rules and good tactical understanding of the game
  • Desire to learn quickly and become a better and better player (both through coaching and self-improvement)
  • Mental resilience and love of competing to win
  • Good team-mate; helps get the most out of others as well as themselves
