3 months ago By Thongsbridge Cricket Club

Following Ben's successful game for Huddersfield New College against MCC ,where he took 5 wickets (2 with a broken finger) & was man of the match.

Ben was put forward for selection for the MCC Schools annual fixture against England Schools Cricket Association. He has subsequently been selected in a 12 man squad out of a pool of over 2500 schoolboys.

He will be going to Lords on Monday 3rd September for a look round the ground followed by a full training session. The MCC Team Manager will then select the Xl to play the following day with a 12th man. It's a 50 over game on the Tuesday starting at 10.45 am followed by a dinner in the Long Room for the players.

Ben has been enjoying a successful first season at Thongsbridge and first season playing Premiership cricket. So far he has taken 37 wickets in all competitions and become a key member of the 1st team.

Huge congratulations to Ben from all at TCC!
