Boys’ Emerging Player Programme intake announced for 2022

Durham Cricket are delighted to announce the boys’ Emerging Players Programme (EPP) intake has been confirmed for the 2022 season.

Seven players have been selected based on their performances and potential within the Durham Cricket county age group programme and will represent the EPP side in 2022 in addition to their age group team.

The Durham Cricketers representing this year’s Emerging Players Programme will spend the winter working with EPP Head Coach James Lowe, Academy Director John Windows and Assistant Academy Coach Cole Pearce, as they prepare for the 2022 season.

Mason Bell (Whitburn), Charlie Coulthard (Willington), Joe Davis (Willington) Max Jackson (Hartlepool), Harry Lumsden (Gateshead Fell), (Charlie Scorer (Hartlepool) and Matthew Maloy (Middlesbrough) – have all been selected in the EPP for this year.

For 2022 the EPP will run alongside the Academy for the first time, with the players following a training programme throughout the winter and then into the summer.

EPP Head Coach, James Lowe, said: “ It is great to welcome these players onto the EPP programme for this year. This is an exciting group who have put in some superb performances at their clubs and in the county age group set up.

“The hard work has already started for these players with winter sessions already underway. We have a busy winter training block planned which should provide the support needed for these players to progress their cricket.
“We wish them all the best and look forward to seeing them work hard and develop their skills over the next 12 months.”

The seven players selected will work with specific coaches throughout the winter based on their skill set with former Durham Cricketer Nathan Rimmington returning to work with the pace bowlers – while Durham Cricket Assistant Lead High Performance Coach Neil Killeen is also supporting the seamers.

Their winter programme began in November and will run throughout the winter before training outside in the spring ahead of the 2022 season.
