Exciting challenge awaits EDP U17s

The England Development Programme (EDP) U17s squad will gain invaluable experience this week as they take on the older age group of the Pakistan and Bangladesh U19s teams in two games that represent warm-ups for the tourists prior to their triangular series with England U19s.

On Friday, the U17s face Bangladesh U19s in a 50-over match on the Brockington pitch at Loughborough University.

Twenty-four hours later, Pakistan U19s represent the opposition on the Haslegrave pitch at Loughborough, with both games starting at 10:45am.

Visitors are welcome to both games to support some of the most promising young players in the country in two challenging fixtures.

Iain Brunnschweiler, Head Coach of the U17s, said: “The U17s have a really exciting opportunity this week to play two really tough games against older and more experienced opposition.

“It will be really interesting to see where our players’ skill levels are, in comparison to their opposition, and an outstanding development opportunity for the boys. I'm really looking forward to the preparation camp and the matches.”
