Ex Ardingly College student Tom Clark has received his first call up to the England Under-19 cricket squad

The 18-year-old batsman is part of a 16-man squad for the tri-series against India U19 and Bangladesh U19 in July and August.

Keith Wright, his coach at the College, is thrilled with his success:


“This is great new and very well deserved. Tom has been a credit to Ardingly school and we are all delighted for him.”

England U19 Head Coach Jon Lewis said: “We’re expecting a big test against India and Bangladesh this summer – two countries who are very strong at this level of cricket.

“These fixtures are excellent for developing a player’s skills, experience and character – some of the best young cricketers from the three countries will be battling against each other and these ‘best versus best’ experiences are what we feel give the players the greatest opportunity for learning whilst on the international pathway.”
