Derbyshire Academy paceman Will Davis has been nominated in the Under 18s Sports Performer of the Year category for the 2011 Stafford Borough Sports Awards.
Stuart Taylor (Archery) and Oliver Webley (BMX Racing) have been nominated alongside Will. The winner will be announced at the Award Evening on Friday 2nd March.
Alongside team mate Harvey Hosein, the 15-year-old earned selection for the ECB’s England Development Programme for under 16s during the 2011 season following impressive performances for the Midlands at the traditional Bunbury Festival.
He also excelled in Academy cricket, opening the bowling impressively in the Derbyshire Premier Cup Final victory over Ockbrook & Borrowash, as well as impressing in senior club and junior cricket with Staffordshire outfit Milford Hall.
Davis’ route to the Derbyshire Academy came as a result of strong links between the Derbyshire and Staffordshire Cricket Board, a link that has also brought the likes of Tom Taylor, Greg Massingham and Ben Cotton into the setup, all of whom made Second XI appearances under AJ Harris last season.
