Sam Attends LCCC Academy Cricket Tour in Oman
St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form student Sam flew out to Oman to attend a Cricket Tour with the Lancashire Cricket Academy.
Sam joined his teammates on the trip which was sponsored by the William Hare Group. First Team players Jordan Clark and Tom Bailey, both established players in the Lancashire squad who came through the Academy system, also went along, giving the Academy players the chance to gain extra knowledge from their professionalism and skills.
The tour, arranged by the Global Cricket School, provided Sam and his team with valuable match practice ahead of the UK domestic season and the opportunity to experience playing in different conditions. As well as training they took part in two one-day fixtures and two T20 fixtures against a national Omani A team and Nottinghamshire’s Academy.
Sam’s team beat Nottinghamshire's Academy by four wickets in their second 50 over clash and completed their week-long tour of Oman with two impressive T20 victories.
