Charlie S Named Harry Burden Young Cricketer of the Year
Fifth Form pupil Charlie S has had quite a cricket season. Alongside fellow pupils he has enjoyed a successful 2019, representing Somerset U17s, playing at the Bunbury Festival and helping Taunton Deane CC U15s to the national finals.
Charlie, who lives in nearby Wiveliscombe, has a very supportive family. He joined King’s Hall in Year 7 and joined King's College in Year 9.
A hard hitting, dominant batter, Charlie likes to clear the ropes, and also bowls some excellence seamers. He is clearly a very talented young cricketer who keeps his game simple and plays with little fear. Part of the winning side who scooped the National Cup for King’s two years ago, he has continued to develop his game representing the 1st XI last summer while still being in the Fourth Form (Year 10).
Now part of the Somerset Academy, Charlie received this award at the Harry Burden Memorial Lunch, which took place at the Cooper Associates County Ground back in December. The lunch takes place every year to remember Harry, a keen young cricketer who died of leukaemia just before his eighth birthday in 1996.
Commenting, our Head of Cricket, Rob Woodman said: "It was a proud moment to hear that Charlie was nominated for the Harry Burden Award. He has had an outstanding year, winning countless matches, with exciting performances at all levels. It has been great to see him flourish through the levels and his selection for Best of Bunbury.”
