Fin Trenouth who is a batsman who also keeps wicket has joined the Somerset Academy this year.
The 18 year old who lives in Bristol said: “I am very happy, especially after the disappointment of not getting on last year. However, 2016 has been good for my cricket development and I have finally made it so I am very happy. I think that anybody who plays age group cricket for Somerset wants to get onto the Academy and then push on, so I’m really excited. Next year I want to be playing regularly for the Second XI and go on from there.”
During 2016 Fin scored a triple century for Somerset Under 17′s about which he said: “I guess that would be the highlight of my season and it would have been even better if we had managed to get a win from the game, but it was a great day.”
Fin initially attended Clifton College before moving to Millfield School in September 2015. He plays his club cricket for Bristol CC who are in Premier One of the West of England Premier League.
Somerset Academy Director Steve Snell said: “ Fin had an outstanding summer for Somerset Under 17′s and made a name for himself with a huge score. Finn took his disappointment of his non selection last autumn and used it to fuel his self improvement over last winter. The improvement in his attitude and fitness were stark and it made it impossible not to select him on the Academy this winter. I will be looking for Fin to show the same diligence, work ethic and desire to improve as we have seen over the last year and if that is the case then he can turn himself into a highly talented player who Somerset fans will enjoy watching.
