WORCESTERSHIRE quartet Dan Holland, Alex Hinkley, Pete Clark and Lewis Evans will be in action for the Midlands in the 31st English Schools Cricket Association Under 15s Bunbury Cricket Festival at Stowe School from Monday until Friday.

Holland and Hinkley are part of Worcestershire's under 15 age group programme and EDP programme.

Clark and Evans are part of the County's satellite Shropshire academy which is run by former County paceman Paul Pridgeon.

The festival in Buckinghamshire will showcase the skills of 56 of the most talented under 15 players in the country.

Worcestershire director of cricket Steve Rhodes said: "We're delighted the youngsters are still coming through.

"We've now taken over the pathway of the age groups and that is only going to be a good thing.

"Elliot Wilson, Andy Sutton and Ryan D'Oliveira have done a great job with that pathway in producing players but also the amount of work gone into the academy and the development of excellence squad where a lot of these guys have come from."

The County have equalled the achievement of 2015 and 2016 in having a quartet of players chosen.

In 2015 Jack Haynes, Musharraf Shazad, Ewan Wilcox and Ryan Wheldon were called up and then 12 months ago it was Haynes for a second time as captain, Zain Hassan, Matt Davies and Xavier Clarke, the brother of Joe.
