2017 SYC Honours

Over the years the Staffordshire Cricket Young Cricketers Pathway has been the starting point for progression onto the First Class and England opportunities.

2017 continued this trend with 3 players progressing their cricketing careers in the First Class environment.  James Taylor (u17) followed his brother Tom  by signing a professional contract with Derbyshire. James made his First Class debut by representing Derbyshire against the West Indies.  Alex Thomson who represented the Staffordshire Age groups and was part of the Staffordshire EPP before representing Cardiff MCCU at univesrity.  He also represented the Staffordshire Senior team and his progress and performances were recognised by Warwickshire, who offered him a professional contract and he made his 1st team debut in September.  Liam Banks continued his progression with Warwickshire and was called up for and represented the England u19s this summer with two half centuries to his name.  Further to these successes Jack Redman, Adam Peat and Ethan Laverty were all invited to join the Derbyshire Academy under the guidance of Mal Loye.
