Worcestershire CCC Pathway batsman, Alfie Higgins, produced some remarkable performances – including a DOUBLE century – in two Under-12 fixtures against Warwickshire and Herefordshire, respectively.

Higgins, a pupil at Bromsgrove School, opened his golden spell by making 113 against the Bears.

It was a quality knock against some fine bowling and came after he had spent three hours in the field captaining the side on a scorching day.

His 91 ball innings contained one six and 17 fours out of a total of 225-9 in 40 overs in a game Warwickshire won by 62 runs.

Higgins, who is on his third year on the Worcestershire Pathway, then faced Herefordshire and struck a superb 201 not out.

He opened the innings and scored his runs out of 304-7 in a 78 run win.

The right-hander plays his club cricket for Barnt Green.

Worcestershire Academy Coach, Elliot Wilson, said: “I don’t ever remember anyone at this age level scoring a double century for Worcestershire.

“It is a very rare achievement, quite a remarkable performance, and the century versus Warwickshire and a good attack was also top drawer.”
