Welcome to NUSC Cricket
(NEW WEBSITE STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!)
NUSC Cricket based in the North East of England, is a unique organization integrating leading club cricketers at academic institutions across the North with local cricket community to challenge some of Europe's top sides and raise money for charity which in 2014 is ABF The Soldiers Charity.
NUSC is fortunate to have a coaching staff in 2013-2014 including former England U19 players Ben Harmison, Ian Hunter and Ash Patel with ECB Level 3 coach Ronny Boyd. Previous coaches have included Pakistan National Coach Umar Rashid, Durham CCC Head Coach Jon Lewis and stars players Phil Mustard, Gordon Muchall, Yorkshire’s Simon Guy, Cricket Ireland’s bowling coach Neil Killeen and Delhi Daredevils' Jeremy Snape.
We hold no trials to join the club. Instead each player is recommended to us by coaches, managers, scouts or our own club members, all experienced observers who watch and play matches around the country or countries.
Talent alone does not make a successful member. We need players who adopt a ‘can do, will do’' attitude while they are with us. Cricket Australia U19s star Will Bosisto flew in to captain NUSC during our ‘Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Tri Nations’ triumph in August 2013 which sets the“can do, will do” standard for the 2014 intake to match.
NUSC is proud to be main sponsored by Hilton Newcastle Gateshead and Kookaburra-Reader Ltd. We would also like to acknowledge the kindness of all those who support our tournaments and who donate their assistance, goods or services to the club but wish to stay anonymous.
How do I join the NUSC adventure?
If you have the “can do, will do attitude” and want to come on the adventure that is NUSC then we want to hear from you. Intake is every September. For 2014/2015 any interested parties should register such by August 20th 2014 by e-mailing the club at email@example.com
If you are an overseas student here for the “summer” season like Will Bosisto, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to see if we can link you up with the squad to develop your experience while in the UK.
We are delighted that the iconic name of Hilton Newcastle Gateshead remains central to all that NUSC does in 2013/2014.
Championship teams will again be welcomed into the luxury of the hotel as their base for what are now some of Europe's most talked about cricket championships.
NUSC are proud to adhere and share with The Hilton Family of Hotels founder Conrad Hilton’s philosophy that; “It has been, and continues to be, our responsibility to fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality.” The company puts a name to its unique brand of service that has made it the best known and most highly regarded hotel company: be hospitable®. The philosophy is shared by all nine brands in the Hilton Family of Hotels and is the inspiration for its overarching message of kindness and generosity.
