TWO young Euroa cricketers will set off for the UK this weekend on a 16 day coaching experience.

Andrew Crosbie, 14, and Linton Colclough, 17, were selected for winter coaching at Shaun Brown Cricket Coaching in Melbourne where they were then able to take part in the UK tour.

The boys will take part in a packed program and will play eight games against schools and academies throughout the UK and other parts of Europe.

Andrew and Linton will also be treated to sightseeing at places like Buckingham Palace and the Louvre in Paris.

The tour will also feature coaching sessions on English pitches which Linton said are different to those in Australia.

“The ball comes a lot slower off the pitch over there,” he said.
