Exciting young batsman Ben Lumb capped a successful season by scooping a top award from Nottinghamshire CCC.

The opener won the batting award for Notts under 13s after compiling 450 runs at an average of 35, a total which put him 10th in the run-scoring charts among all age group sides.

Ben made five half-centuries – the most by any player among the county’s age group sides – a tally which included a top score of 93, made fittingly on his home ground at Kinoulton CC.

He also won the Players’ Player award for 2015, was the under 13s top fielder and boasted the best bowling strike rate and average.

Ben, who was named Melton Times Junior Sportsman of the Year in June, also made 388 runs at 35 for Kinoulton’s senior first team in the South Nottinghamshire League with a top score of 151 not out.

He averaged 200 for Kinoulton’s Under 15s side for whom he was dismissed just once, and also skippered Kings School’s Year 8 cricket team to the County Cup, scoring 1,400 runs and taking 40 wicket for the Grantham school.
