Ireland name Under 15 touring squad - 6 players from NCU in the squad

Cricket Ireland

Ireland have named their Under 15 squad which will play seven matches in ten days on a tour of Scotland and England next month.

The Irish take on traditional rivals Scotland in the Celtic Cup, a three 50-over match series plus a T20 starting on Monday August 7th before heading South to play Surrey, Hertfordshire and the West Indies at Merchant Taylor's School.

Former Ireland A international Brian Allen is Head Coach and he admitted squad selection was difficult given the number of talented youngsters at this particular age-group. "This squad as ever wasn't easily selected with lots of competition for places, although we are very happy with this exciting group of players we've got," said Allen. "We have a testing 12 days of touring this year which will really challenge the squad. I look forward to getting everyone together and seeing these promising players forge new friendships and enjoy performing together."
