1st XI Cricket Captain Named in Lancashire Cricket Academy 2022

Year 13 pupil, Tom, has recently been named in the 13-man Academy Squad for Lancashire Cricket for 2022.

It has been an exciting few weeks for Tom, as last month he was named in the England Under-19 World Cup squad, who head out to the Caribbean to take part in the tournament this month. This won’t be his first experience of international cricket; Tom was part of the England Cricket Under-19 side that played a 6-game series against the West Indies back in September 2021.

Head of Talent Pathway at Lancashire Cricket, Chris Benbow, said: “The 2021 season saw lots of opportunities for our Academy players to play and gain further experience in the Second XI, whilst Tom was also included in the First XI squad for a number of Royal London Cup fixtures.

With the amount of international and county First-Class cricket being played, there will be more opportunities for our county pathway players to impress and gain that invaluable experience for themselves and the winter programme which they are currently undergoing at Emirates Old Trafford will ensure that they are ready for this challenge.”
