20 Taunton School pupils have been selected for county and district cricket training squads this winter after being successful at trials.
During the October half term, Somerset County Cricket Club held cricket trials for the under 10 up to 17s squads. 12 Taunton School players made it through to the Somerset county winter training squads, which also includes players undertaking specialist skill programmes in bowling and wicket keeping.
The players chosen were Cameron Harding, Tom Walsh, Oscar Samuel, Henry Weatherill, Ben Chaffey and Harrison Barrett in the Senior School, as well as Prep School players Alex Chaffey, Findlay Robertson, Kian Roberts, Cole Willoughby, Thomas Ford and Oscar Coleman.
Six further players were chosen for the district squad: Ollie Edwards, Seb Malley, Bryce Beddingfield, Oliver Mellenchip, Isaac Finch and Brogan Flitton.
In addition to these Somerset players, Adam Small and James Doble have been selected for Devon winter training squads.
Director of Cricket Pete Sanderson said “It was very pleasurable seeing the attitude and skill level of our players when I visited the trials at the county ground and I am delighted we are building up our county representation.”
