A first year cricket scholar at Felsted School has broken a record previously held by a former England star and been nominated for a prestigious award.

Ben Waring, aged 17, has been nominated for the Cricket World’s Performance of the Week after setting a new school record for the most wickets claimed in a season.

The teenager bettered the wickets taken tally by Old Felstedian and England Test and One Day International cricketer Derek Pringle, by taking 68 wickets at an average of 7.78.

Waring not only plays for Felsted School 1st XI, but also for Saffron Walden CC 1st XI in the East Anglia Premier League.

His talents have also seen him turn out for Essex U17s and he has played several times already for the Hertfordshire senior team in the Minor Counties competition.

Jason Gallian, ex-England cricketer and director of cricket at Felsted, said: “I am delighted with Ben’s first year as a cricket scholar at Felsted.

“He reaped the rewards of working hard through the off season which has given him the opportunity to play a superb season for Felsted and be selected for Essex U17s.
