WILTSHIRE Cricket has announced a relaunch of its Emerging Player Programme (EPP) which sees new formal partnerships with First Class neighbours Gloucestershire and Hampshire.

From January 2017, the EPP programme will be dual branded with players from the north of the county being coached jointly by Wiltshire and Gloucestershire coaches and those from the south with Wiltshire and Hampshire.

Among the first batch of players invited are South Wilts under 14 batsman Edward Wade, left-arm spinner Ben Higton, under 13 batsman Benji Tucker and under 15 seamer Jayden Atkinson.
