Under-17S Return To One-Day Cup Action In Devon

Worcestershire Under-17s will return to Royal London One-Day Cup action tomorrow (Sunday) when they take on Devon Under-17s at Heathcote CC near Tiverton.

Academy coach Elliot Wilson has named a 12 strong squad for the 50 over fixture which gets underway at 11am.

The Under-17s will be striving for their first victory in the 2018 competition.

They then went down by 33 runs against Somerset at Clevedon a fortnight ago.

Keeper Sam Flavell, who played for the Seconds in this week’s Championship match with Nottinghamshire at Stourbridge, is included in the squad.
