Surrey’s Jamie Smith has returned from his first taste of England Lions action with a singular focus; putting in consistent performances that lead to trophies for his county.
The 21-year-old wicket keeper batter captained his team in the Royal London Cup and won a host of awards last year, including the Members’ Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year gongs. He was further rewarded with a call-up to the England Lions tour that shadowed the senior Test team ahead of the recent Ashes series.
However, he describes 2021 as “good, but not great” in an interview with the Club upon reporting for training at The Kia Oval.
Surrey’s professional squad are currently working in the Ken Barrington Centre at the Club’s home ahead of a move to the outdoor marquee later this month and Smith feels that putting together a string of victories and winning trophies is what the side led by Interim Head Coach Gareth Batty should be aiming to do.
