Hampshire Academy Star Named In England U19 Squad

Hampshire's Scott Currie has been named as part of a 16-strong England U19 squad for their tour to the Caribbean this winter

Hampshire youngster Scott Currie has today been named in a 16-strong England U19 squad set to tour the Caribbean in November and December.

The series is the last competitive test for the young players before the ICC U19 World Cup, which takes place in South Africa in January and February 2020. Many of the 16 players selected featured in this summer’s tri-series against India and Bangladesh, including captain George Balderson and vice-captain George Hill.

Currie and Sam Young come into the squad having showed their potential this summer in second team cricket for Hampshire and Somerset respectively, and together for Dorset in the National Counties competition.

Former Hampshire wicketkeeper Nic Pothas will join the England U19 coaching team this winter as fielding coach, with Warwickshire batsman Ian Bell coming in as batting coach.

With the World Cup on the horizon, this is our last opportunity to assess our squad and decide which 15 players to take with us to South Africa. We’ve also taken this opportunity to look at some players who are relatively untested at this level and have the chance to force their way into our World Cup squad.

Jon Lewis, England U19 Head Coach
