Cricketer Hannam to tour with Devon U15s in February
Bideford teenager Alex Hannam has been selected to tour South Africa with the Devon U15s cricket team.
Alex, who attends Bideford College and plays his club cricket for Bideford, will fly to South Africa in February for the three-week tour. The team will play two games in the Kruger National Park area before flying south to Cape Town where they will play a further four matches.
Alex is the only North Devon district player in the 14-man squad and has represented Devon every year since the age of 10.
“Everyone at Bideford CC is very proud of Alex’s achievements on and off the field,” said Bideford Cricket Club chairman Kevin Fishleigh. “You would have to go a long way to meet a nicer young man than Alex and because of his extraordinary attention to detail and focus on being the best player he can become, he is one of those lads who you will always like to see doing well.
“Alex deserves every bit of support, he works as hard as any player I have had the pleasure of coaching and this selection proves what a talent he is.”
