Jamie Smith Named In England U19s Squad

Published: 12th October, 2018

Surrey’s young wicket keeper batsman Jamie Smith has been selected for the England U19s for their upcoming training camps in the UK and India.

Smith is Surrey’s sole representative in the squad of 18 but will be joined by the Club’s Lead Physiotherapist Alex Tysoe, who is touring as part of the staff.

18-year-old Smith signed his first professional contract with the Club in July after making his senior debut at Lord’s in the Vitality Blast clash with Middlesex.

England U19 coach Jon Lewis said: “It’s been hugely enjoyable this year to see Harry Brook, Will Jacks, Dillon Pennington and Ethan Bamber progress from representing us in last year’s World Cup to impressing in their county 1st XI.

“I know from having chatted to them that they felt their time with the Young Lions improved them as players and that’s an example of the value our pathway can add to young players.

“I reminded this squad that it wasn’t that long ago at all that Sam Curran and Ollie Pope were sat in the same seats as them. They both showed the characteristics of players who wanted to become international cricketers and their speed of ascent since has been testament to their hard work. I’m looking forward to developing this group so that they can start their own journey on that path.”

The second half of the winter will see the England U19s take on Bangladesh U19 in all three formats of the game, leaving on January 19.
