Former England fielding coach Richard Halsall was on hand to run an assessment day at Norwich School.

The assessment day will assist selection for the 2018-19 intake for the school’s cricket academy, which is run in partnership with Sussex County Cricket Club.

Halsall, who is also a former Bangladesh assistant coach, is academy director at Sussex CCC. There have been over 40 applications for the second year of the Norwich School cricket academy, from boys and girls aged 10 to 16 from across East Anglia.

A Norwich School spokesman said: “The aim of the partnership is to provide a route for talented cricketers in the East Anglia area to be involved in an elite development programme, which it is hoped will in turn lead on to them becoming first-class cricketers or international women’s cricketers.

“They will benefit from top level coaching and support at the impressive facilities at Norwich School.”
