Surrey batsman Euan Woods has been called up to the England squad for the forthcoming U19 World Cup.
Woods played regularly for the Second XI last summer and was a key part of the Surrey team that won both the two day and One Day ECB U17 competition in 2016.
He also represents Berkshire in the adult Minor Counties competition, winning the four day and One Day double this summer and being named Man of the Match in the 2016 final after hitting 142*.
The left hander toured India with the England U19s in the 2016 winter, alongside his fellow Surrey batsman Will Jacks – who he is joining the England World Cup squad.
Woods’ late call up comes after Somerset all-rounder Tom Lammonby had to withdraw from the tournament after injuring his left hand in practice.
England beat Ireland in their first warm up earlier this week, with Jacks scoring an unbeaten century, and will now travel to Lincoln for their final warm up game against Sri Lanka on Thursday before the tournament starts on Monday January 15th with group games against Namibia, Bangladesh and Canada, all of which will be played in Queenstown.
