Young Lions Call-Up For County Duo Dell And Scrimshaw

Young Lions Call-Up For County Duo Dell And Scrimshaw

Worcestershire duo Josh Dell and George Scrimshaw have been selected for the Young Lions squad this winter.

Batsman Dell and paceman Scrimshaw will be part of two Young Lions training camps at Loughborough before joining the England Lions in Dubai for a three week training camp in December.

Scrimshaw this summer signed his first professional contract with Worcestershire along with opening batsman Ollie Westbury.

Dell was part of the England Under-19 side which took part in the recent two Tests and three ODIs versus Sri Lanka Under-19s.

The 17-strong squad of players will be led by head coach Andy Hurry and will play two one-day and one three-day match in Dubai.

All those selected are eligible for the England Under-19s tour of India in January and February when they will take part in two four-day and three one-day games against India Under-19s.

The Young Lions was formerly known as the England Development Programme, and introduces the most talented young players to international cricket through the England Under-19s.

In Dubai, Hurry will be supported by many of the Lions coaches, including Andy Flower, Graham Thorpe, Peter Such, Chris Taylor and Bruce French, as well as the former Durham team-mates Neil Killeen and Paul Collingwood.

The Young Lions programme also includes the Regional Super-Fours festival for the best Under-17 players in the country.
