A little more information on Digby from Russell Evans.
Digby scored 173 runs in the U11 D&CCL league at an average of 52, the highlight being an 18 ball 50 against New Mills. Itís the first time that Iíve witnessed a 50 at U11 level.
The batters are only allowed to bat in pairs for 4 overs!
He also helped the U11s win the semifinal and final of the U11 cup, taking a total of six wickets in the semi final and final, during his two over spells.
Digby also represented Hayfield CC U13 and U15 teams. His wicketkeeping was immaculate over the season. We had no need for the usual Ďback stopí fielding position.
He represented Derbyshire at U11 level and won the prestigious wicket keeping award at the Shrewsbury County Festival, where 8 counties come together to play against each other.
The wicket keeping award is voted for by the umpires during the festival. Digby took 3 catches and 2 stumpings. Itís unusual for batters to be caught behind at U11s level.
Digby has secured his place in the U12 Derbyshire squad for the 2019 season.
Heís received some excellent coaching from Ian Durham and more recently with SEAMs cricket, run by AJ Harris. AJ delivers excellent, relevant coaching and should be supported by the High Peak. Diggers has a great attitude and has shown real maturity both on and off the field.
