Teenager in squad alongside some of country’s brightest talents

Middlesex youngster Luke Hollman has been named in the England Young Lions squad for two training camps over the winter.

The 18-strong squad will take part in a training camp in the UK, before flying out for another training camp in the Indian city of Bangalore.

Hollman has been named in the squad alongside some of the country’s other brightest talents.

“It’s a high potential group of players and I am excited by the prospect of them working with this set of staff and the challenging conditions that India will present,” said head coach Jon Lewis.

“I think it’s one of the best parts of the job, being able to provide an experience that adds value on top of what the players normally receive at their counties.

“I reminded this squad that it wasn’t that long ago at all that (England Test stars) Sam Curran and Ollie Pope were sat in the same seats as them.”

It looks set to be a busy winter for Hollman.
