The Emerging Player Programme has a responsibility to ensure that all players in Devon that reach a first class academy position are fully prepared and capable of dealing with the challenges ahead.

The primary aim in a minor county youth environment is exactly the same as the aim in a first class county youth environment - ‘to identify and develop future first class cricketers’

The Emerging Player Programme is being run in every county in the country and whilst each county will run it differently, its’ primary purpose is to provide quality coaching within quality facilities to support the development of young cricketers (boys and girls).
