20 year old Berkswell cricketer lines up alongside England regulars Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott this morning in Warwickshire’s 1st XI as they take on Sussex at Hove in their 4-day County Championship clash.

 

Tom is a product of Berkswell Cricket Club’s youth system and is currently working hard to break into Warwickshire’s 1st XI on a regular basis, having enjoyed being part of last season’s team that picked up the Championship title at Worcestershire’s New Road ground in 2012.

 

Berkswell’s youth section is geared up towards offering talented youngsters a clear path into the professional game, thanks to their strong ties with Warwickshire and access to top coaches thanks to a partnership with local coaching consultancy Complete Cricket, run by Knowle & Dorridge cricketers David Smith and Jamie Spires.
