Lancashire’s Regional Development Centre (RDC) squad has been confirmed for 2020

16 players from across the North West have been selected to take part in the Lancashire Cricket Regional Development Centre (RDC) this winter.

The RDC winter programme has been underway in the Trafford Cricket Centre at Emirates Old Trafford since November.

The purpose of the Regional Development Centre is to identify, develop and prepare players for the next level of the Pathway by giving them individualised and localised programmes of support across eight centres in England.

Following the conclusion of their winter programme, players will then move into a summer match programme, which includes a four-day festival against other RDC’s from around the country.

Lancashire is one of the eight centres which will look to provide enjoyment, support to individual players, relevant experience and create learning environments for players to take into club and county cricket, as they progress through the pathway.

Head Coach Jen Barden (ECB Level 4 Women and Girls Manager) leads on the programme alongside Danny Gilbert, Arran Brindle, Jordan Clarke and Christina Carr.
