Dollin Jansen
Nathan Williams 
IOMCA EPP
Lucy Barnett
Ben Leinwand

Academy players Carl Hartmann and Jacob Butler performed excellently for the National Team in the recent Cyprus triangular series. Carl was outstanding with the gloves and batted maturely to be not out in three of his four innings. Jacob was a go to bowler with the ball taking 9 wickets in the series and a very reliable boundary fielder. Dollin Jansen made his National Team debut versus Estonia and at the time was the 9th youngest player to play T20 international cricket and the youngest to play for the Isle of Man. Fraser Clarke and Josh Clough were also part of the successful National Team squad after a number of good performances over the season. Nathan Williams moves into the Academy after some excellent performances in the Super 2s and against the MCC including 6-12.

Congratulations to Bliss Murtagh who has been invited to be part of the EPP after her performances for the women's senior squad in training and Super 2s matches. This will be alongside Lucy Barnett, Ben Leinwand, Cameron Roome, Jared Shepherd and Ryder Spencer who have also retained their places for 2021/2022 after showing good progress and making a number of strong performances in 2021.
