Jake Lintott, an unorthodox left-armer who marked his professional debut for Hampshire tonight with a wicket, came all the way up through the Somerset ranks from our Under-13s to the Second XI.
He was born in Taunton and educated at Queen`s College, but I see he is 24 years of age so perhaps we had `passed` on him.

He actually played U11 to 2nd XI via the Academy and like so many others was binned off. It just goes to show that spinners, especially 'unorthodox' ones take a long time to develop their skills. He has been playing 2nd XI cricket for various counties for several years, played overseas in Sydney and Colombo, is Captain of Clevedon CC in WEPL and plies his trade with Wiltshire in the Minors. What you might call a 'full time semi pro cricketer'
