The three-day u13 Merseyside tour continues Cricket Leinster Youth long-standing work to widen its youth player’s development experience and marks a pleasing return to the UK.
The tour, which has been supported by Senior Sports Officer with Fingal County County Niall McGuirk, takes in two challenging fixtures and the opportunity to watch some of the world’s best players including Glenn Maxwell and Irish international Boyd Rankin in a T20 Blast game at the world-famous Emirates Old Trafford ground. The trip will also take in short visits to Old Trafford and Anfield football stadiums.
