James Hibberd, the Regional Performance Manager (Hampshire Cricket) and a hugely respected Calmore Sports player and coach, said of the selections, “It is an incredible number of players from just one club on the Performance Pathway.

“A few factors contribute to the success of a clubs programme, a huge amount of effort and commitment from coaches, a successful men’s team which gives these players role models to look up to and Lord’s cup runs have generated real interest for our juniors and parents really buying into the way we do things.

“Lastly, a talented bunch of players that are willing to put the commitment into their own and the teams progress.

“The future is bright and there is more talent at the club that we look forward to developing!”
