Student Trained by CBA Cricket Coach is Selected for County Squad

Erica Turner has been selected as wicket keeper for the Northants county squad.

Erica, who is a product of the CBA cricket system, was scouted at an under 15 tournament earlier this month and will now be travelling the country as part of the Northamptonshire team.

The student, who also plays county level netball and is an accomplished footballer, said she enjoys the sport because of the team nature of it.

She said: “I like the team element of the game and have found that the secret to it for me it to just constantly watch the ball.”

Cricket Coach Jordon Joseph, who started up a cricket team when he was Head Boy and now is a staff member in charge of developing cricket, said the achievement is huge.

He said: “Erica is a product of CBA cricket. This shows that students who join our cricket squad can come before the attention of local scouts and make it to county level.

“To make it to county level so quickly is a massive achievement and the role of wicket keeper is a very difficult one as it requires quick reactions and total concentration throughout the entire game.”

There is a cricket team for students at all years of CBA and last year Mr Joseph also established a Girls cricket team.
