The Sierra Leone Under-19 cricket team represents the country of Sierra Leone in Under-19 international cricket. Emmanuel Pessima is the all times runs scorer of the Sierra Leone U-19 Cricket Team and also the only Batsman that has given the team over 61 runs not out
Sierra Leone have only competed internationally at Under-19 level for the last couple of years but have already been very successful, qualifying in 2009 for the 2009 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup Qualifier. Unfortunately, due to visa reasons, Sierra Leone were unable to make it to Canada for the event and so missed out on the chance to qualify for the World Cup. They are also in a minority of affiliate cricket nations who field an Under-19 side.
Most recently, Sierra Leone participated in the 2010 ICC Africa Under-19 Championships.
The squad selected for the 2010 ICC Africa Under-19 Championships was:
- Ibrahim Kamara
- Charlie Coker
- Edward Marrah
- Alvin Williams
- Emmanuel Pessima
- Ibrahim Kabia
- Solomon Williams
- Ibrahim Mansaray
- Brima Ansumana
- Balowa Mansaray
- Bami Williams
- Richard Tommy
Sierra Leone finished sixth in the 2010 Division 1 Championship and so are due to compete again in the next installment, likely to take place in 2012.
