He has been a member of Thetford CC since the age of six or seven and said the club is looking for more youngsters to build up for the future.

He is in the sixth form at Thomas Payne school in Thetford and hoping to go to university next year.

“I've been playing county cricket for the past three or four years. It has been good. I would like to get as far as I could, to a really high level,” he said.

He started off as a leg-spin bowler but then improved his batting and likes being an all-rounder.

The last season might be over but county indoor nets will start soon to get the ball rolling once again.
