Some encouraging performance from youngsters in the four-day inter-squad match at Taunton this week, in which Team Abell beat Team Bartlett by an innings and 12 runs.

The newly-graduated Roelof van der Merwe (BSc First Class) added match batting honours also, with 61 and 66 for the Bartlett outfit plus 2-53 with the ball.

However, ii was 16-year-old left-arm quickie (decidedly quickie) Jack Harding from Clevedon who caught the eye with 3-41 when Team Abell batted , while another youngster, England Under-19 left-arm spinner Lewis Goldsworthy was second-top scorer for Team Abell with 59, as well as being among the wickets (3-12).

Encouragingly, Steve Davies was among the runs with 104 on his single visit to the crease, but Eddie Byrom was left with a pair at the top of the Team Bartlett order and James Hildreth garnered just 1 and 5. Six wickets in the two Team Bartlett innings for Jack Davey and Tom Lammonby

Most likely candidate for the opening match against Glamorgan, with Dom Bess and Jack Leach both away with England - yet another Cornish lad, Lewis Goldsworthy.

Was Jack Harding the bowler getting all that in swing or was that Lammonsby?

Tom Lammonby - another England Under-19 success and another Devon product. Another likely candidate for the Glamorgan opener.

I have a feeling he made his limited overs debut last summer in front of the tv cameras.

He did. Looks like he's done some bowling work over the winter. The bowling looked lively on the little that they put out.

I was wondering where Mr Harding jas arrived from. Thanks people

That Lammonby wicket at 0:15 on the highlights was almost Wasim Akram. (OK, 10 mph slower, and the swing was a yard earlier, but even so ... blimey!)

Glamorgan will be at full strength at Taunton on August 1, apart from Wisden Cricketer of the Year Marcus Labuschagne. Fellow Australian, seam bowler Michael Hogan, who was on the brink of retirement at the age of 39, has decided to continue playing as the season will now be so short.
