Cricket: Midlands Young Cricketer of the Year 2012

Saturday 14 April 2012

The much-coveted Alec Hastilow Trophy was recently jointly awarded to a Salopian and a prospective Salopian at the Midlands Cricket Club Conference Dinner held in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

The trophy is for the most promising young cricketer (or cricketers, in this case) under the age of 16, and was won by Edward Pollock (I LVI) and Edward Barnard.

Both Edwards have older Salopian brothers, now in the Upper Sixth, who were in our highly successful 1st XI in 2011, and Edward Barnard's eldest brother was in our 1st XI in 2006 when we won the Silk Trophy. 

A previous winner of the Alec Hastilow Trophy was OS Jimmy Taylor (R 2003-2008), who is now the England A Captain.
