Welsh Cricket Team Success for Ellesmere Student

Josh Andrady, Yr 13 at Ellesmere College, is continuing to bowl over cricketing experts with his talents - as he was recently selected to tour India as part of an academy programme. Josh, 17, from Mold, North Wales was also named Welsh U17 Cricket Player of the Year.

He was selected for Glamorgan and joined other talented future cricket stars on the pre-season trip to Mumbai.

Gareth Owen, Cricket Academy Director at Ellesmere College, said: "Josh is an extremely talented cricketer and we're delighted he got the opportunity to go on this tour abroad. He has turned in some very good performances for Wales, including 113 and 78 against Nottinghamshire and 64 runs against Staffordshire in a one-day game. He continues to catch the eye of the Welsh selectors to represent his country and attends the National Development Centre."

Josh is part of the Glamorgan Academy Programme which focuses on the most talented boys and girls to receive coaching by Glamorgan County Cricket Club's staff coaches and the Cricket Wales Performance Manager.

Glamorgan are one of 18 First Class county cricket teams in the country and many players go on to play at the highest level.

"As a result of his potential and performances, Josh earned a place on the 10 day pre-season Glamorgan Cricket Club Academy tour to India," Mr Owen added. "It was a wonderful opportunity, which involved an intensive cricket programme and a chance to soak up the atmosphere and rich Indian culture. The trip is educational and an excellent learning experience which will stand the youngsters in good stead in the future."

He added, "Josh combines his commitment to Glamorgan Cricket Academy with his studies and practice at our Cricket Academy here at Ellesmere College. He is guided through the technical and tactical aspects of his cricket development and receives a personal coaching and development programme."
