News: Scotland to start off regional academies…

Looks like the SportScotland grant is being put to good use. Scotland has become one of the few associates to have at least a functional network of academies in place. Kenya also has one, but I am not sure what the state is of that. Tanzania also has one (Mumbhili Academy).

    I have seen both the academies in Kenya and Tanzania in recent times. I cannot speak for the organisation or the coaching but in terms of the facilities I can tell you that the Kenyan one had pretty good facilities, the Tanzanian one was in need of investment, to put it mildly

    well as far my knowledge is concerned I think KENYAN academy at moment is not functioning due to some reasons.I think SCOTLAND will get more coaches for its academy due to its location as compared to KENYA.

    Farhan,

    You are right, Nick Deverell has provided some information on the Cricket Europe International Forum regarding the Kenyan Cricket Academy. It appears that the facility is not available to Cricket Kenya due to a financial wrangle between them and Simba Union (the club where the facility is located). Once again a saddening example of Associate cricket shooting itself in the foot

    well Roland i hope they sort that out, I am big fan of cricket in Kenya.what I think kenya need to concentrate Much on SCHOOL kids. Seeing countries like Botswana, tanzania AND uganda REALLY MAKING HEADLINES DUE TO THIER school cricket progress. I dont see any such progress in KENYA, hope they start school cricket development programme soon.
