Ben’s cricketing ambition

Ben’s cricketing ambition
Ben Lawman
Wednesday 1st May 2013 by C. Freeman

Year 8 cricketer Ben Lawman is celebrating after winning a place in the county team, having only starting playing the sport two years ago.

Ben attended trials at Bedford School when he was picked for the U-13 squad who were victorious in their first match. Ben, who also plays for Stewarts and Lloyds, has extra coaching each week and plays for S&L teams most nights, as well as finding time for a bit of football!

Ben said: ‘I was really pleased when I found out I was in the team and we are due to play a county match every Sunday. I also train on Mondays with my coach at the Northants county ground. I am working on my batting skills, I am pretty good at bowling and, when I played in the Brooke Weston team recently, I scored 50 runs.

‘I will be going on a tour to Somerset with the county squad later this year. Unfortunately I have missed playing against bigger teams like Middlesex and Essex but my first match was against a team from Warwickshire and we won. The other people in the squad are nice and we get to travel all around the country for fixtures.’
