Young star is tipped to emulate his older brother
like Tom, a right-arm mediumquick bowler and right-hand batsman, has also been handed his entry route.
The 21-year-old, who has also been a mainstay of the Bucks minor counties side, has been on trial with County Championship side Leicestershire with a view to gaining a contract.
Matt Watson, his skipper at Gerrards Cross, said: “Dan has been superb with both bat and ball for both us and for Bucks this season.
“Dan is a huge talent just like his brother. Hopefully he is getting a lot out of being with Leicestershire, and they are getting a lot out of him.
“He is one of the best allrounders I have ever seen, and to have had both brothers as part of the Gerrards Cross family has been great, and Dan will still be with us all year as well as Leicestershire.”
The younger brother, however, had an uncharacteristic off day, taking 2-46 and managing just 10 runs, as Gerrards Cross lost to Amersham in their Home Counties Premier Division Two derby on Saturday (see match report on page 41).
He has been one of the few bright spots in a miserable start to the minor counties season for Bucks, which saw them crash out of the Unicorn Counties KnockOut Trophy following four straight defeats.
The county will be back in action in the Unicorns Twenty20 groupstage matches at Harpenden CC on Sunday – where they will take on Berkshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire in a bid to win a place at finals day, on July 12.
