BET Programme 2019
After the launch in 2018 of the BET (Bedminster Emerging Talent) Programme the club will be making some changes to this for the 2019 season. BET was overall a success; however, we realise that changes are required now we don’t have a ‘Head Coach’ in place.
BET in 2019 will be available to those over the age of 14 and who are either current, or past members of the district or county teams; or in exceptional circumstances are invited to join by the clubs coaching staff. This will still only be for those who are viewed as being candidates for 1st XI cricket (Premier 1) before the age of 23.
BET players are invited only and on the recommendation of the coaches and agreed by the Youth Co-Ordinator.
BET sessions will run throughout the spring on a Friday night at Merchants Academy (from February). Details will follow for those invited into BET.
Those Under 14 will not be eligible for BET, however, we will be running sessions for those players in the district and county squads and for those that have the right attitude, love of the game and desire to learn.
BET players will have access to top quality coaches, all of which will be overseen by Pete Trego of Somerset County Cricket Club.
