Derbyshire under 18s duo, Archie Harrison and Yousaf bin Naeem, have been called-up to the Midlands team for the upcoming ECB Super Fours, while under 15s batter, Harry Moore, has been selected for the Bunbury Festival.
Moore is Derbyshire’s leading Pathway run-scorer this season, with 506 runs across 14 innings, at an average of 42.17 and a stunning high-score of 165, which came in a 50-over game against Cheshire in May.
The youngster will be hoping to once again stand out when he plays for the Midlands under 15s at the legendary Bunbury Festival, facing the North team on Tuesday 19 July.
Following in the footsteps of fellow Academy players, Mitch Wagstaff and Nafis Shaikh, Harrison and bin Naeem will feature for the Midlands Super Fours team in the five-day tournament at Loughborough, which takes place at the end of July. The Midlands Super Fours team will also be led by Derbyshire Head of Talent Pathway, Daryn Smit.
Harrison’s form within the Academy this season, which has seen him score 166 runs in just three innings, including a century in a recent game against Cheshire Cricket Board under 18s, has seen him included in the Second XI Championship squad.
Yousaf bin Naeem has 402 runs, including four half-centuries, at an average of 44.67, having made the step up to under 18s cricket this season.
