The Wiltshire 2nd XI team provides an important link in Wiltshire’s player pathway between age group cricket and the Wiltshire CCC 1st team. The 2nd XI programme consists of winter training sessions and then a summer matchplay schedule. The winter training is specifically for players, aged post under 18s, so as to avoid any clash with the county under 18 programme, and to give both programmes a clear identity in terms of which programme they should attend (it should be noted that this decision will not preclude under 18 players from being involved with 2nd XI fixtures in the summer). Whilst there will not be an upper age limit in terms of the winter programme, the selection group will be looking at young players aspiring for county recognition who have the time and commitment to attend a 12 week coaching programme.
Selection for summer matches will serve two purposes:
With the two points above in mind, it is important to note that the 2nd XI summer matches will be open aged. This point is particularly relevant to under 18 players who who will attend a separate winter coaching programme. They will definitely be considered if it is deemed right for their development
In order to be consistent with the Wiltshire CCC selection policy, the following players will be eligible for Academy selection:
In addition, no player ’not qualified for England’ shall be eligible to participate in a 2nd XI fixture.
