This year in December Glamorgan's academy squad will be going on an academy tour to Abu Dhabi. This is an incredible opportunity for us as young cricketers to experince the type of climate and conditions that the sub continent brings. It will undoubtedly aid our cricket development and broaden our cultural awarness. The tour will consist mostly of training, but we will also play a South African touring academy side and a local cricket academy.
The trip is costing each academy player £1,350. To raise money, in the past few months we have held various auctions and have arranged coaching days in November to help pass on what we have learnt in the academy to the younger generation of cricketers. One of our main events is a 24 hour net being held on the 20th of Novemeber, this consists of the academy squad netting continuously for a whole 24 hours.
The net will be held in the SSE Swalec and each player will be doing an equal share of the work. If you want to follow how the net is going, on the 20th of Novemeber you can follow "glamacad2015" on twitter as we will be giving hourly updates on our progress.
A Small pledge towards this tour or the 24 hour net event will help us massively in reaching our goal. Thanks alot from all of the Glamorgan Academy squad!!
