Price is right as Jordan earns MCC Young Cricketers call-up
Lansdown’s Jordan Price has joined three players with significant sporting pedigree in earning selection for the MCC Young Cricketers programme.
The right arm fast-medium pace bowler caught the eye of MCC head coach Mark Alleyne after an impressive 2012 campaign with the Combe Park outfit.
He will attend a pre-season training camp alongside a combined MCC Universities team in Abu Dhabi next month and will spend the rest of the summer making the most of the world-class training facilities and expert coaching available at Lord’s. Price will also turn out for the Young Cricketers in the North Division of the ECB 2nd XI competitions.
Liam Gough, the son of ex-England fast bowler Darren, Jamie Hoddle, the son of former England football manager Glenn, and Test batsman Joe Root’s brother, Billy, are also included in the squad for 2013.

“I am delighted to welcome Jordan into the YCs squad this summer,” said Alleyne. “ I have been impressed every time I have watched him play and have heard several excellent reports about him, so I am really looking forward to seeing what he can do out in the middle for us during the season.
“The last couple of summers have been frustrating results-wise and while success for the YCs scheme isn’t always about winning individual matches, it is important to ensure that we are attracting the attention of county coaches with strong performances on the field.
“I want every player, including Jordan, to be out there and challenging for a county contract this season.”
Recent Young Cricketers graduates include international captains Darren Sammy (West Indies) and Will Porterfield (Ireland), as well as Nottinghamshire and England Twenty20 batsman Alex Hales.
