Craig Young signs for Sussex

Craig Young

Ireland under-19 international Craig Young has signed a one-year deal with English County side Sussex, after impressing at a training camp with the club in Dubai. The bowler had gone for a trial with the English side before being invited to participate in the training camp.

Young was one of Ireland's most impressive players at the Under-19 World Cup in January, taking nine wickets in all. His best performance came against Zimbabwe, scoring 4-14. Young had been playing with Bready in the NW League, but is now moving on to bigger pastures.

He said "I got news that I was being offered a contract following my time with them in Dubai. I'm delighted, and hopefully it'll work out for me. I'll be going over shortly for pre-season, and they'll be in touch with Ireland to see what my likely commitments will be during the summer. After they speak with them, a plan will be drawn up which will hopefully work for everybody."
