Dave (U-14 last season) enjoyed good form for colts, seniors and school last season. In the school's U-14 Essex County Cup final he became only the 4th person to ever get a century in a school's county final (Ravi Bopara and Nick Knight were two of the 3 others!) with a match winning knock of 105 in a 30 over game.
Dave is a very dedicated young man who is committed to improving and plays the game with enthusiasm and a smile on his face. Dave was called up by Essex last season and has had trials again this winter.
Dave has decided to put his money towards spring loaded stumps, keeping gloves and extra outfield strips.
Dave was presented with his award during an assembly at Shenfield High School. He was barely visible in what was otherwise a super photo taken there, so here's one of him later, with Garry Sapsford, Head of PE at Shenfield School and Shenfield CC 3rd XI Captain.
