ENGLAND COME CALLING FOR SONNY!


The rumours have been circulating for a couple of weeks, but it is now official, Sonny Baker, will be part of the England U19 XI who are taking on their counterparts from the West Indies next week in Kent.

Sonny will probably be the first cricketer from Torquay CC to play for England U19s or above since George Emmett (great uncle of James McMurray an occasional visitor to this parish these days) played a sole test match back in 1948!

The grounds being used are Polo Farm (Canterbury) where Ryan Stevenson played there for Hampshire CC 2nd XI in 2015 while securing his contract and Beckenham which was used to film the Vitality advert starring Joe Root the same year.

The Assistant Coach for the West Indian squad is no other than Sir Curtly Ambrose – think he was a rather useful quick bowler in his time! 

The six match series is vital preparation for the U19 Cricket World Cup which the West Indies are holding next year.
