Have no fear, Torquay aren’t about to drop their up and coming spinning all-rounder, Harry Passenger, from the 1st XI. However, this week’s team selection has sent Evo scurrying for the record books and a calculator. Had Blaise Baker’s selection seen Harry lose the title of the Youngest Torquay CC 1st XI League Player?
Both player’s debuts were going to be about 13 yrs and 4 months – Harry away to Brixham in 2018 and now Blaise away to Barton in 2020.
Looking at the respective dates more closely before he crunched them in a calculator, Evo realised it was going to be mighty close but ultimately the calculator said “Passenger” had retained the honour by just 18 days (4865 days to 4883 days).
Blaise though can retain the bragging rights when it comes to DCL Records with the best ever bowling performance in E Division West aged only 12.
