A TALENTED Hucknall teenager has played a brilliant innings to land a cricket scholarship to a prestigious private school.

LEWIS BRAMLEY (17), pictured, of Jenny Burton Way, has made a name for himself in the junior game by climbing the ranks at Notts CCC and becoming captain of the county’s under-17s side.

A former pupil of National Comprehensive in Hucknall, Lewis’s ability was recognised and he was put forward to join Worksop College.

Now, after bowling over his teachers, he has been selected as the school’s head boy during a year in which he is due to complete A-levels in sports science, biology and history.

Dad Graham, who previously played cricket for Worksop and Farnsfield, and mum Sue (48), said: “We are very proud of him.”

Lewis has plenty of family connections to cricket. His late great uncle, Dick Bramley, and his grandad, Fred, were integral members of the now defunct Bulwell Cricket Club.

Lewis, who is an all-rounder, performed well last season for Worskop College in inter-school competitions and helped his side reach the national finals of a Twenty20 competition in which he opens both the batting and the bowling. In the future, Lewis hopes to play Minor Counties cricket when he goes to university — DISPIC NHUD11-2835-2.
