The 2015 U19s European 5 nations tournament will take place in Belgium from Tuesday 11th - Saturday 15th August 2015 in Belgium. 

Belgium as hosts, France, Germany, Luxembourg & Switzerland have all confirmed their participation.

Following the successful tournament in France in 2014, a similar format has been proposed by Cricket Belgium, with teams arriving on Monday, playing Tuesday - Friday with a final on the Saturday. Three grounds are under consideration to host the games.

Players have been short listed based on their performances during the indoor season; nevertheless, the national coaches will connect with every player to establish a development agenda through the outdoor season - so final travel to the tournament is not an automatic right, all players are required to keep practising and join as many Colts games as possible, to prove that they are worthy of the national side.
For those who have not been shortlisted, we encourage you to continue practising and playing Colts cricket, since you are on call, in the event of injuries or drop outs.


Proposed accommodation details will be shared shortly. Budget is expected to be similar to that in 2014.

Vinod Unikkadath will be in touch with each of the players (and parents), to confirm logistics and deposit payments for this tournament.


Officials for the tournament have been named as follows:

  Name Country
1 Peter de Boeck Belgium
2 Stephen Tovey Holland
3 Alexander Mackay Switzerland
4 Paul Cawsey Switzerland
5 to be confirmed Germany
6 to be confirmed France
