Jacks cap

Published: 18th May, 2018

Will Jacks became the first player to receive a Surrey debut cap ahead of his maiden first-team appearance against Somerset in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

19-year-old Jacks was awarded with a ceremonial cap by captain Rory Burns ahead of the start of the match in a presentation that will now become a tradition for every Surrey debutant.

Information on the cap includes the name of the player and the date and opposition of the game in which they made their debut.

An off-spinner and explosive batsman, Surrey Academy graduate Jacks starred for England during the U19 World Cup earlier this year making a century against Canada. He then joined the club’s pre-season tour of Dubai before impressing in 2nd XI cricket in April and May.

On the new tradition, Director of Cricket Alec Stewart said: “It’s always a big moment for a player when they make their debut and now there is a cap to mark the event that they keep forever. Will Jacks will now forever be the debutant of the debutants to receive the cap.”
