Young Horsham pair pick up cricket academy awards

Sussex star Chris Nash handed out the awards as the First Class Cricket Coaching academy celebrated another successful season.

The academy nurtures some of the finest talents in the county and England Lions batsman Nash honoured them at their end-of-season prize-giving held at Worth School.

Among the trophy winners were Horsham pair Tom Clark and Tom Haynes, who both play for Sussex.

Clark was named the academy’s Best Player for the U-11s, while Haynes picked up the same award for the U-13s.

Raj Chaudhuri, who co-founded the school with Jerry Heath and Graham Irwin, said: “Our boys and girls have had a terrific year.

“They continue to develop at a fast rate and it’s very rewarding to see so many blossoming in the County Academy squads, the MCC Universities, the County Age-Group teams and at Area level.”
