Jack in Year 7 at Meopham has been chosen as one of only fourteen boys in the County to play for Kent Under 12s this summer. Jack is the only boy from his club, Dartford CC, to secure a place on the County team. The County team will play 15 fixtures across the summer season all over the country. Jack will be the bowler for the team for the upcoming games.
Getting on to the team was by no means easy, either. Jack took part in trials for ten weeks across the Winter period in order to secure his place.
When we asked him how he feels about representing his county, Jack said, “I feel really proud that I got in. I feel a bit nervous though because it’s quite a big deal.” His ultimate goal is to keep going with cricket and keep representing the County. He would one day love to be about to play for England.
