Akeliah Antoine and Toneita Phillip were the first two girls selected for the Digicel coaching clinic yesterday, at the Sir Frank Worrell Cricket Centre in Trinidad.

The two girls along with their brothers, Jaydon Antoine and Ansyl Phillip, joined 43 other young cricketers from across the country who were selected yesterday at the auditions.

Steven Katwaroo, the Under-15 player - along with his younger brother Stephon - are also participating in the two-day clinic in addition to two Trinidad & Tobago Under-13 players Antonio Alleyne and Jordan Jahoor.

"I'm impressed with the coaches, they are very experienced and they know what they are doing," Katwaroo, 14, said, "and this clinic will be very useful for me and all the other kids because it will help us with our cricket skills in the future."

The youngsters were taken through their paces, learning basic cricket skills and other drills and exercises by Kenny Benjamin and Keith Arthurton, the former West Indies players.
