Hants wicketkeeper gets England call-up

Basingstoke Gazette: TOM ALSOP TOM ALSOP

Hampshire wicketkeeper-batsman Tom Alsop has been included in England's u19 squad for next month's test series against South Africa.

Alsop, who played four ODI games against South Africa U19s 18 months ago, will be making his five-day debut at international level.

EDP Head Selector David Graveney said: “This is a great opportunity to continue the progress made through-out the winter and to play against the current u19 World Champions.

"At this age-group level the sides tend to play more one-day cricket, so this is a real chance for both of the teams to hone their skills over the longer format of the game."

England U19s: Will Rhodes (Captain), Yorkshire; Jonathan Tattersall (Vice-Captain); Yorkshire, Tom Alsop, Hampshire; Ed Barnard, Worcestershire; Karl Carver, Yorkshire; Joe Clarke, Worcestershire; Matt Fisher, Yorkshire; Ryan Higgins, Middlesex; Rob Jones, Lancashire; Saqib Mahmood, Lancashire; Rob Sayer, Leicestershire; Josh Shaw, Yorkshire; Dominic Sibley, Surrey; Luke Wood, Nottinghamshire.
