Sussex Girls 2019 Academy and EPP announced

Three girls have been selected for the 2019 Sussex Cricket Girls’ Academy. A further five girls have been given places on the Emerging Players Programme (EPP).

Cassidy McCarthy, Ella McCaughan and Ella Wadey form the Academy. Amie Anderson, Frankie Angel, Elise Jorgensen, Freya Kemp and Hollie Young are included in the EPP. The Academy players attend one-to-one training sessions twice per week during the winter and members of the EPP meet as a group for one batting and one bowling session each week. Within the EPP, Freya and Hollie will take part in a new ‘EPP Plus’ programme, which rewards players who have excelled over the previous summer and are deemed to be extremely close to an Academy place. EPP Plus players will receive an extra one-to-one training session every fortnight during the winter on top of their regular EPP sessions. Both programmes are based at the Sir Rod Aldridge Cricket Centre at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) and are made possible by funding from the Aldridge Foundation.
