Norfolk Emerging Players Programme (EPP)

The ever successful EPP programme now into its 10th year and is regarded very highly with the ECB.

The programme has included players such as Jaik Mickleburgh, Oliver Stone & Callum Taylor who have all gone on to represent first-class counties. Other players such as Sam Arthurton, Ryan Findlay, Will Dunger, Matthew Taylor, Matthew Plater, Sam Hunt, Will Rogers, Flynn Drinkell & Callum Metcalf are either still with first-class academies or were at some point.

The NCB adopted the ECB's Emerging Players Programme in 2007-08. The programme aims to take on youth players (boys or girls) who have a realistic chance of playing first class cricket, giving them an intensive and managed schedule over one year (or more if required). The programme is run by Chris Brown (Level 4 Coach) and covers intensive technical coaching along with mental preparation, physical conditioning and lifestyle elements.

Head EPP & COE Coach: Chris Brown
