Interesting our academy is now known as 'elite squad' instead.

Sussex appear to have done the same thing, so maybe all counties have done this.

I seem to remember something about the ECB wanting to set up eight 'acadamies' separate from the counties, so the best in the 14-18 age group would naturally gravitate to the bigger counties, with other counties accepting the slightly less talented (but good enough to get a pro contract) players.

Another 'divide and rule' tactic aimed at reducing 18 academies down to eight, in the belief fewer will produce 'more'.
