Dum­ble­ton young­sters hit cen­turies for coun­ties

Gloucestershire Echo - - CRICKET -

TWO young Dum­ble­ton bats­men both scored big cen­turies for their coun­ties at the week­end.

Tommy Boor­man (Un­der-14) scored 152 not out for Glouces­ter­shire against Worces­ter­shire on Sun­day.

Boor­man, who also scored 109 not out for Dum­ble­ton II on Satur­day, bat­ted all the way through the in­nings to help his team reach 299 from their 50 overs – which proved too many for Worces­ter­shire who fin­ished on 224 in re­ply.

Mean­while, Dan Hol­land played a su­perb in­nings of 133 not out for Worces­ter­shire against Som­er­set Un­der-17s.

Hol­land went in at num­ber four and put on more than 200 with Ol­lie Walker as Worces­ter scored 308 and then bowled Som­er­set out for 163.

Hol­land and Boor­man are two of the 36 ju­nior play­ers at Dum­ble­ton who rep­re­sent their county age group sides across boys and girls’ cricket.

The club has in­vested heav­ily in de­vel­op­ing their ju­nior sec­tion over the last 10 years and they are now start­ing to re­ally see their ef­forts pay off with some ex­cel­lent ju­niors now play­ing reg­u­larly for their se­nior league teams.
