Tom Alsop playing for England Under 19s

Only a couple of weeks ago, Ravi Patel, and old boy of Merchant Taylors' School, was called up by England Lions for their forthcoming one-day series.   Those affiliated to OMTCC, for whom I played for over 20 years, will also be interested to see who is batting at 6 for England Under-19s in their current match versus South Africa.   None other than Phil Alsop's son Tom Alsop, who has graduated from playing for Hampshire 2nd XI and moved into the Under 19 team.
In his first innings Tom scored 40 off 80 balls so not a bad return and hopefully enough to ensure he retains his place for the 2nd Test starting Thursday.   Phil reports (via Facebook) that watching his son play for England Under 19s was truly priceless.   Good luck to Tom for the 2nd innings if he gets a knock and for the 2nd Test.
