Trial Nominations

Leicestershire County Cricket Club is looking to provide opportunities for talented 18 to 24 year-olds to showcase their cricketing skills.

The Club prides itself on being the Academy of Cricket, giving chances to players to highlight their ability to professional coaching staff.

This usually takes the form of Trials Days but these are not currently able to be held in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic and National lockdown.

However, you are able to nominate a player to be considered for a trial in the future providing you have some footage from games/training sessions that took place in 2020 by following COVID-19 regulations when they were permitted.

It is vital that you stay at home during the National Lockdown and do not create new clips at this time. Leicestershire CCC will continue to offer opportunities in the future when it is safe to do so.

There are two stages:

  • Complete the survey HERE
  • Send 3 individual clips from games/training sessions that took place in 2020 by following COVID-19 regulations (no longer than 30 seconds for each clip – see below for guidelines) highlighting your batting, bowling and fielding skills to Second XI Head Coach Dips Patel dipspatel@leicestershireccc.co.uk 

The club will assess the footage and be in touch. Please note that no trials will be held until it is safe to do so.
