Guernsey’s youth wins in 2023 means they will be swapping the ICC qualifiers in Denmark, for a trip to Newcastle upon Tyne, England, to play in ‘The North East Cricket Series’ in August.

Moving into its 21st year, ‘The North East Cricket Series’ has maintained its reputation as one to attend, with the England and Wales Cricket Board, KNCB Netherlands, Cricket Scotland, and an Australia T20 champion team part of the two post-COVID series.

Guernsey, who impressively won the Cornerstone Academy series against Cricket Ireland, Hampshire and Somerset in April, faces a multi-format series, with training, matches, training team bonding opportunities.  This including a special trip to the iconic St James Park Stadium, home of Newcastle United Football Club, as the tour squad prepare for 2025, and the opportunity to become the first islander cricketers to qualify for an ICC World Cup.

Ben Ferbrache, Guernsey Pathway Lead noted, “I played in the North East Series so it is an extra pleasure to be returning as a coach.  This year’s multi-format series gives us a very challenging cricket schedule, some iconic sightseeing, and valuable time together away from the island, to act as a perfect springboard into our ultimate goals as a team in 2025”.  

John D Holland, the North East Cricket Series Director added “Guernsey know they are always welcome in the North East Series.  They are the gold standard of tourists and have shown through their Cornerstone Series win in April the quality of players that is touring.  Great credit goes to Ben and his players for their passion to make the trip in August, for what is going to be a very challenging multi-format series”.

‘The North East Cricket Series’ will be releasing more series details including venues, formats, and the live streaming details in the coming weeks.
