Left-hand batsman; Right-arm seam bowler
Tom first attended Great Melton’s pre-season nets in 2015 but our hopes of acquiring a new first team bowler were dashed when he decided to stay at Mattishall. However, a year later, he made the move to Melton. Educated at Dereham Neatherd High School, Easton College and Moulton College, University of Northampton, Tom also played for Dereham as well as Mattishall and had ‘best bowling’ stats of 6-18 off 12 overs plus a best score of 87 before joining Melton. In his first season for Tom took 16 wickets despite being hindered by a back injury which restricted him to 16 appearances. He has been hampered by further problems with his back since then which have restricted him to 33 appearances in 4 seasons but he has still performed admirably for the First Team when he has been fit enough and he played in 13 of the 15 games in 2019, frequently opening the bowling. He also made his tour debut last season.
Stats: Appearances 33; Runs 61; Wickets 31; Catches 16
