Calling all spinners...

I am happy to publish this press release that has been sent to me and hope that any young spinners around our wonderful county think about applying.

Let's be honest, there's places to be grabbed...

National Spin Competition: Trip to India for Spin School for two winners
The search is on for the UK’s most promising spin talent, with two winners being sent to Mumbai, India, for next year’s Spin School Scholarship.
In its fifth year, the National Spin Competition aims to develop the UK’s amateur spinners and provide them with as many opportunities as possible. Run by Club Cricket Conference in conjunction with HKSZ.TV, this competition will be the third consecutive time that Cricket Deal Direct ( has co-sponsored the event.
“Cricket Deal Direct is based around the concept of ‘helping and supporting’ cricket – at all levels,” said managing director Ian Anderson, “It’s very important to us to see players develop and this competition is an excellent opportunity for the winners to do just that.”
The entrants will give their best under the watchful eyes of their judge, former Kent and England spinner Min Patel.
“This event for amateur spinners from around the UK plays a significant part in promoting and showing the skills of extremely talented club spinners” said Club Cricket Conference manager, Gulfraz Riaz.
“There is always a huge amount of interest in this competition with applications from around the UK increasing to record numbers each year” said Riaz.
Entries are being sought from UK cricketers aged 18-21 who have no links to first class county sides and are available to travel to Edgbaston on 20 September 2015.
The two winners, having beaten some of the UK’s top amateur spinners, will travel to India in 2016 for the 7-day workshop at the Global Cricket School in Mumbai. 
Cricket Deal Direct also offers a Young Elite sponsorship programme to players wishing to obtain world-class cricket equipment through their clubs. To learn more, contact Ian Anderson via the Cricket Deal Direct website or on 01778 345618.
