AMID CONTROVERSY over the composition of the Barbados Youth team in the Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) Elite Division, there are calls for changes to schools cricket.

Pickwick coach Corey Yearwood believes the BCA should go back to having separate Combined Schools North and South teams while also allowing schoolboys who have not been selected for either team to represent clubs.

“What we need to do is to try to get some of these players that are now leaving school that have potential to actually join clubs to help get the cricket stronger,” Yearwood told NATIONSPORT in an interview on Saturday at the Foursquare Oval.

“It is no use you playing these schools in First Division cricket where you have at least 22 or 25 decent students playing First Division cricket and also school cricket. That is not benefiting the cricket,” said Yearwood. (EZS)
