Croydon trio signed up for county squad
THREE Croydon youngsters have been signed up for the Pemberton Greenish Surrey Academy for the 2011 season.
Aman Shinwari, Michael Burgess and Jack Winslade have all been given a great opportunity to forge a career in professional cricket after being accepted on the programme.
During the season, they will play for the PG Academy side in a full fixture programme against sides from the Ryman Surrey Championship, as well as their club teams and other Surrey representative sides at U17, second XI and potentially first XI level. This will be complemented by a full programme of mentoring, strength and conditioning coaching and personal support.
As the season progresses, they will continue to have opportunities to train with the first team squad, giving them further understanding of the mental and physical qualities required to pursue a professional career at the highest level, the ultimate goal of Surrey's player pathway which has already created 12 members of the current first team and three other players who are pursuing first-class careers at other counties.
