Second Eleven Coach Ian Dews was delighted with the performances of his team this summer, with great progress made by a number of the Club’s younger players.

“It’s been a really good year,” said Dews. “A lot of positives to take out of both the red and white-ball cricket.

“We started off really well in the new four-day competition, getting some good wins early season including some big contributions from some of our younger players. We had a double hundred from George Hill, Matthew Waite made a 150 plus score and it showed the difference in mindset having gone from three-day games to four.”

Arguably one of the most pleasing things from the season was the emergence of some of the Club’s young talent into the first team.

“George Hill was probably the first one to progress to the first team this year,” said Dews. “It showed when he got his double hundred early season that he was going to be pushing on the door. Will Luxton was slightly different to George. Will had done really well with the Academy and through the age groups and got an opportunity because of The Hundred and a couple of injuries and he went out and did really well. He then got his opportunity in the Royal London Cup and took that, which has then led to him get an opportunity with England Under 19s this winter.”
